Happy Birthday...CR84FN56 58

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, June 9, 2012 @ 8:55 PM | , ,

Hey there! It's time for an all new CR84FN Color Challenge! Thanks to all who played along with CR84FN55 ~ so many pretty projects! For the next two weeks we will be playing with the pretty color combo shown below:
My dear girlfriend is celebrating her 50th on June 14th so I had to make one more Birthday card! I pulled out a neglected PTI stamp set and a few dies along with pretty patterned paper from My Mind's Eye and this is what I came up with:
I layered a stamped butterfly on top of a butterfly made using a die and pretty patterned paper, then finished it off with a coating of glitter and a rhinestone brad.
For sketch inspiration, I played along with Freshly Made Sketches:
