Seize the Birthday - Birds, Bees or Butterflies

Happy Thursday my friends.  It is time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this time we have the "Toppings" option of using Birds, Bees or Butterflies on your birthday card.

I looked through my stamps for a bird, but ended up using these butterflies from SU Papillon Potpourri.  I stamped them in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Copics to match the colors in the DSP.  I fussy cut them and added rhinestones to the bodies.  I added sparkle with my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter pen.  You can see it better in the photo below.  Also, green and coral stripes in the DSP are glittered. (Very pretty IRL)  The DSP is from DCWV Mango Frost Mat Stack.  The sentiment is from a stamp I got at JoAnn's, but it doesn't have a name on it.  The sentiment is matted with a Spellbinders Lacey Square die cut.  The large scallop mat is cut with an MFT Blueprints 20 die and the card base is my favorite, Coordinations Heavy White Card.

You should check out all the fabulous cards by my teammates over at Seize the Birthday.  I am sure you will be inspired and I hope you play along.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.
