Birthday Cards

This past weekend two of my Great Aunts celebrated their birthdays. One of my Aunts turned 80 years old & I have to say she looks wonderful!! On Sunday all of our family got together to celebrate her birthday. It was nice that so many from our family were able to come!!

Here are the cards that I made for both Aunts.
For the background on this card I used a piece of white card stock & embossed it with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. Then I rubbed versa mark ink over the entire piece & dabbed chalk on top of the embossed parts to color. To add a little sparkle I outlined everything using different colors of stickles. The butterfly was made using the Wizard & the Spellbinders butterfly dies. I also used the butterfly die as a stencil and added some ink to the wings. Also for a touch of sparkle I used stickles & some crystals.

Paper~SU-Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Almost Amethyst
Stamps~SU-Sentiment (retired)
Ink~Versa Mark, Elegant Eggplant
Other~SU-Chalks, Crystal Effects, Gold Cord (retired), Oval Punch, Ranger-Stickles, Cuttlebug-Embossing Folder, Spellbinders-Wizard, Butterfly Die, My Stash-Ribbon, Crystals

I have to say I haven't really used SU Groovy Guava very much but I really like how it turned out on this card!! I really love the color combo & it works perfectly with the SU Brocade Background paper.
