Seize the Birthday #172 - Butterflies

Hello again!!! 

Today a new challenge has started at Seize the Birthday! My lovely team mate Barbara wants for us to play with butterflies this time around.

But you may enter any birthday themed project into our gallery, if you want!

I integrated lots of butterflies in my card :)! 

I started off by making the background panel. I applied Hazelnut, Pink Sherbet, Peach Bellini and Denim alcohol ink on a Ranger alcohol ink cardstock and blended them using rubbing alcohol and blending solution.

After the panel was dry I cut the Butterfly Swirl by The Ton from the panel . I also cut it from some white cardstock.  I then gold heat embossed the Softly stamp (40-671) by Penny Black on the panel.

I cut the panel using Swirly Stitches die (51-502) by Penny Black and foam mounted it on a white cardbase. I then added several white butterflies onto the panel and one butterfly cut from the colored panel on a tulip. 

The sentiment was gold heat embossed on a strip of vellum and adhered on the card. To finish off I added blue rhinestones on a butterfly and on the end of the sentiment strip. 

That's it from me! Hope you like my card!

Please hop over to Seize the Birthday blog for more inspiration from my team mates and our surprise party guest Su Mohr from Aromas and Art! And don't forget to play along :)!

Wishing you all a happy day!

I adore your alcohol ink background and die cutting the butterflies from it looks so pretty TaeEun, and the lavish gold tulips along the bottom half together with the gold embossed sentiment really make a strong look. A stunning card! x

This is gorgeous! I have so many alcohol ink backgrounds that I couldn't figure out how to use until I saw your card. Inspirational.

This is stunning TaeEun! I love the background and how you die cut your butterfly swirl, also the gold embossed tulips work so well against the background and I love how you used a blue butterfly to balance out the blue in the background - so many gorgeous details!!

Your cards frequently leave me speechless and this is no exception. The background is so beautiful and I love how you used the die cut and added the white flowers. So beautiful.
