Shimmery IO Birthday Butterflies!!

When I heard that we were going to do a swap with Impression Obsession, I was so excited! I just love their stamps and I love Shimmerz! So what a perfect match! I decided to use IO's Butterfly Frame set. I just love using butterflies on cards. I love to make them look as if they just landed on there.I first ran my card base through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots embossing folder and then I sprayed some Shimmerz Spritz in Cotton Candy onto it. I then adhered the stamped frame to the front of the card and cut out the center using a craft knife. I only used Shimmerz to color in everything, no other coloring mediums. There is Under the Sea, Hotty Pink and Pink Poinsettia Shimmerz Blingz on the Butterflies and Gold Glimmer, Pink Poinsettia and Celery on the frame. I stamped the Happy Birthday onto an oval piece of paper, sprayed it again with some Cotton Candy Shimmerz Spritz and adhered it to the inside of the card along with another butterfly. (The single butterflies on the card, actually come in a cluster on 1 stamp, but I simply inked each one individually and then trimmed them out.) To finish it off, I added some gingham ribbon and a bow.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

Hugs,
