The Paper Players #141 Happy Birthday

I am playing in The Paper Players challenge this week.  I had to think about this color combo, but I like it.  I made a birthday card using the Top Note die from Stampin Up.  All the papers/CS are from SU also.  I punched squares from the Island Indigo, Baja Breeze and Crumb Cake DSP, adhered them to a 4x5" cs base and cut it out with the Top Note die. I trimmed around the edges where the perforations are and then embossed it with the SU Snow Burst EF.  I then mounted it to a Rich Razzleberry Top Note diecut.  I stamped the sentiment on a piece of Whisper White CS and cut it out with a Spellbinder's Classic Oval die and sponged Crumb Cake ink around the edges while it was still in the die. I mounted it to a Rich Razzleberry Scallop Oval die cut and mounted that with foam dimensionals. The sentiment is a stamp I got at JoAnn's a few years ago and does not have a name on it. I also inked the edges of the Crumb Cake DSP before adhering it to the Crumb Cake card base.  The Rich Razzleberry butterfly is from SU Popillion Potpurri and the flowers are from Verve's Grateful Elegance.  I added SU pearls to the flower centers and the butterfly body.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I appreciate you taking the time to leave me a comment.
