Perennial Birthday, Butterflies Thinlits, Birthday Card

Saying goodbye to the "Butterflies" thinlits.  I have used this die SO much and still love using it. I may hang on to it for a while longer, unless something better is coming out.  I can only imagine what is replacing it is better.  

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock. On top of that is a 4" x 4-1/4" piece of retiring Wisteria Wonder card stock.  I textured it with the "Garden Trellis" embossing folder. I knew I had it. A few days ago I had to use a retired folder because I couldn't find this one and I almost talked myself into believing that I hadn't purchased it, just wanted it really bad!!! LOL  But I did purchase it and I used it here!!

I cut a 4-3/4" x 1-3/4" piece of retiring Elegant Eggplant card stock. On top of that is a scrap piece of the "Delightful Daisy" Decorative Series Paper (DSP).  I cut that strip 4-1/2" x 1-1/2". 

The words are from the "Perennial Birthday" set.  I stamped it using Elegant Eggplant ink on a 1" x 3-1/2" piece of Whisper White card stock.  I layered it with a 3-3/4" x 1-1/4" piece of Elegant Eggplant card stock.  

I took a half a paper doily and taped it to the back side of the DSP panel.  I taped it in place on top of the card.  Then I added the word panel using Dimensionals.  

I die cut the butterfly using Elegant Eggplant card stock.  I set it in place using Dimensional pieces.  I added 3 pearls down the center and one little pearl on the bottom left of the word panel.  Only because I had ink on the edge of the rubber stamp and it transferred to the card stock. I didn't want to make a new one so I covered the mark.  Or...., it just looked pretty there. Ya, that's it. It just looked pretty there!! LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
