Blinged Butterflies Birthday Card For Michelle

It is sweet Michelle's birthday today and this is the card I made for her.  I CASEd this lovely card that Kelly made for my birthday - minus the stitching, that's never gonna happen LOL!  I took advantage of the fact that I have the Mixed Bunch stamp set and matching Blossom punch on loan from my crafty buddy Jan.  I'm going to have a hard time giving these back to her!

I made the card from Pool Party CS and added layers of Early Espresso CS and Jillibean Soup patterned paper.  I cut a panel of Early Espresso CS and punched out a part flower with the Blossom punch.  I then stamped the gorgeous ornate flower as a background.  I stamped the flowers with VersaMark ink, embossed them with clear powder and popped up the Espresso panel.  I stamped and die cut the sentiment, die cut Pool Party and Pretty in Pink butterflies and added bling.   I threaded a strip of Pool Party CS through the buttonholes of a brown button.  I then decided to liven that up with some bling too!


More of those gorgeous blooms inside the card with a sentiment.  I stamped and punched a flower for the front of the envelope and added some of the pretty floral paper to the envelope flap.
