Birthday Wishes

 
I made this card for a dear friends birthday, the card is actually red, not sure why it looks pinkish here. Background is  distress inks misted with water.  I've been having fun playing with stencils and  embossing paste, I made similar cards for the work birthdays this month and will post those soon.
 
A few fun challenges:

I love that gorgeous butterfly and those stencilled paste triangles make a lovely unusual background. Not sure why our cameras play tricks with colours . Mine has a problem with blues and purples . Think you for fluttering by my challenge where your card will be entered twice. Hugs Mrs A.

This is gorgeous, Donna! I love your triangles - geometric shape cards are so trendy now! The embossing paste looks awesome! Gorgeous butterfly too! I hope you have a wonderful weekend, my friend!

I've begun to use different coloring medias and stencils as well lately. It's really fun isn't it, and there are so many different looks that can be created. Love your version with triangles here, they add a nice contemporary feel to this card, but it stills feminine and soft.

Very cool background you've created here Donna!! I just LOVE the embossing paste triangles along with that gorgeous butterfly!! :) Photos don't always capture the true beauty that we see in person...I have many trouble with this! My mom always says it looks so different in person when you're holding it! :)
