Happy Birthday Darling Donkey

Here is perfectly imperfect card. There is one thing I love about handmade cards. If it is not perfect, give it to family and they will still love it. My heat embossed sentiment did not turn out as perfect as I wanted. I was originally going to stamp it in Tuxedo Black and did a last minute change. I don’t regret it, but would I do it again, no. I would add the sentiment before I create my scene.

I am really trying to get better at my pictures. You can’s see it but there are some clouds on this card, I used a scrap of that I had punched an Ice Scoop out of to make a bit of a cloud pattern. I used Balmy Blue and a Blending Brush.

For my “purple” Butterfly I used a combo of Light Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend and Blackberry Bliss ink I added with the water painter. For the “pink” butterfly I used a Light Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend and Poppy Parade ink added with the water painter.

Wonderful AS you–My Butterflies came out the Wonderful as you set! This set is new in the Jan-June 2021 Mini Catalog. This set just seems so perfect for this year!
