Butterfly Blues ....

... Hi! It's a really dull, wet, grey Thursday here in Northville, so I've had the perfect excuse to play indoors! I've a very quick, clean and simple birthday card to share with you today:

Happy Birthday - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Swallowtail; Uniko - Fontiments Birthday
Inks: Kaleidacolor - Blue Breeze; Versafine - Onyx Black; Memento - Grey Flannel
Accessories: White Lustre Card

As soon as I saw the inspiration photo from this week's Addicted to Stamps and More! - ATSM#235 I knew what stamp I wanted to use. This is one of my favourite butterfly stamps, but I've only used once or twice before!! I took the colours from the inspiration photo and simply inked up the image with my blue Kaleidacolor pad and stamped it. I added a simple birthday greeting and on the inside I stamped the butterfly again in grey and added another message. As this is a birthday card, I'm also submitting to this week's Seize The Birthday - STB3003 challenge.

That's all for now. Do drop by tomorrow to see my reminder card for the current Uniko challenge. See you!
