Big on Birthdays, Birthday Card, 2017 Occasions Catalog

Today I thought I would play with the "Big on Birthdays" stamp set.  What a fun set this is. There's lots of birthday wishes sentiments in this set!  I especially like the size of this image.  It takes up most of the card so you can get by with minimal stamping and embellishing.  Though I think I would have textured the background or used some decorative paper maybe.  It needs something. It's a bit too clean and simple looking.  But I still like how it turned out.  

I used a folded half-sheet of Whisper White cardstock. Then I cut a layer of Sweet Sugarplum cardstock 4-1/2" x 2-7/8".  I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock 2-5/8" x 4-1/4".  I stamped the image and then colored it in with markers and a blender pen.

I had a scrap piece of "Blooms & Bliss" decorative paper that I punched a small butterfly from.  I set the butterfly in place using Dimensionals and added pearls down the spine.  I also added a tiny pearl to the center of the larger flower.  I taped the word piece on top of the Sweet Sugarplum piece and I set that in place on top of the card base using Dimensionals.

It was super easy and fun to make.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
