A Papillon Potpourri Designer Tin of Cards and Blooms and Bliss Birthday Card

I have not played with the "Papillon Potpourri" stamp set in a long while.  I LOVE butterflies but there are so many other new sets to play with that I tend to forget about the old ones that I really enjoy.  So today I dug out the stamp set and stamped my butterfly.  I colored it in with a blender pen and Rich Razzleberry.  I used the Rich Razzleberry paper from the "Blooms and Bliss" 12" x 12" decorative paper pack.  I thought the marker would blend better with the paper but it didn't, and it looks even more off in the photo than it does in real life.

The words are from the "Designer Tin of Cards" set.  I masked off the rest of the words on the stamp with a post it note so I could just use the "Happy Birthday".

I don't have any colored Baker's Twine so I just used some white that I had sitting around.  You can substitute ribbon there too.  I didn't have any of that either!!

I rounded the corners with the 1" circle punch.  Just slip the corner of the paper inside the punch and clip it.  I taped the decorative paper in place.  I used Dimensionals on the Whisper White piece and on the butterfly.  And that was it.  Super easy and super quick.  Plus it's got an elegant look to it.  

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
