Happy Birthday

JustRite Stampers Friday Challenge this week is to create a spring card with a butterfly.  I Started the card with BasicGrey "Picadilly" paper and a JustRite "Breath of Spring" stamp.  The flower image was stamped and cut with a Spellbinder oval.  Copic markers were used to color the image and Antique Linen distress finished off the oval.  The stamped image was mounted on the new Spellbinder Floral oval.  A JustRite "Happy Everything" "Happy Birthday" was stamped and cut with a Spellbinder Tag.   While taking the Tim Holtz online class he showed how to use the Rock Candy Crackle Paint and I thought it would make a perfect butterfly.  Hope you can see it in the picture on the right (it will enlarge if you click on the picture).   I cut the butterfly using the Sizzix die and added the paint and allowed it to air dry.  After it had dried I used my Memento markers on it and added some pearls to finish it.  I put this on a ribbon that was colored with Antique Linen Distress ink and added a pearl pin colored with a Copic Marker-RV32 . This is a 4.25 x 5.5 card.  Copic markers used include  Y15, Y18, RV32, B21, YG91, YG93    Hope you enjoy.
