Between my workspace still not together and finishing up the school year, I have not done much stamping nor blogging. School gets out this Friday. One of the first things I want to do is post to my blog. See you this weekend!

When making this card, I tried a couple of different color combinations. The lighter colors just did not have the pop that I thought this card should have. I used my brayer and added Crumb Cake ink to the flat inside of the Flower Garden embossing folder. Next I took Very Vanilla card stock and ran it through my Big Shot. I trimmed it and mounted it on Crumb Cake. I used a piece of Poppy Parade DSP and mounted it on a card base of Crumb Cake. I stamped the butterflies in Poppy Parade, cut them out, and added pearls.
I made a little banner with happy birthday stamped on it, cut the ends in a "V", then added a pearl. I attached the butterflies with Dimensionals. The wonderful thing about this stamp set is Stampin' Up! is donating $2 for every set sold to Breast Cancer Research!
