April 1st, 2015 Happy Birthday Butterflies

I needed a sweet birthday card for one of my chemo buddies and I also wanted to enter Sketch Saturday - I always get a lot of inspiration when I go to Sketch Saturday for their sketch of the week.  Then yesterday I watched a video by Jennifer McGuire on the Hero Arts website and she told how to get some extra pop on your butterflies - although it does not show up really well on this card but IRL I love it.  and don't you just love the NEW stamp from Great Impressions.  I have a couple of cloud stencils but oh my, love this cloud stamp, it is one that I will leave out on my desk cause I think I see a lot of use for this stamp.   Butterflies colored with gelatos and wiped with a baby wipe to get some color variation, butterflies colored to go with the DP from Michaels.  Butterfly punch from MS - which I think it works pretty well for this card.  off to mail this tomorrow.  Challenges:

     Sketch Saturday - follow sketch
     Die Cut Divas - must use a die cut (stitched circle) (butterflies)
     The Pink Elephant - anything goes
     Creative Fingers - anything goes
     Word Art Wednesday - anything goes

Beautiful card! Love that you are using your Gelatos so much. That GI cloud stamp is one I've been eyeing too! Makes such a pretty sky. Thanks for sharing! (Don't know when you've had time to craft!)
