Birthday Card ~ Butterflies In Flight

I had a fun time at the beach yesterday with the family.
We spent most of the day at the aquarium 
enjoying all the beautiful sea creatures. 
My favorites are the jellies.

I started by inking up the flower top then the stem.
I added them to the panel where I thought they fit.
Next I die cut then embossed the back panel.
Then I added the sentiment and banner.
I used white as a contrasting color to the color palette.
To finish off I added these sweet die cut butterflies.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Flowers from the LJD Grand Peaceful Wildflowers stamp set from My Favorite Things.
*Butterflies cut using the Notched Tag Dies set from My Favorite Things.
*Embossed panel cut using the Die-namics Blueprints 8 die set from My Favorite Things.
*Circles cut using the Nesting circles die set from We R Memory Keepers.
*Banner hand cut.
*Embossed using the Rays folder from Sizzix.
*Potter's Clay and Danube Blue stamp pads from Memento.

May your day always be filled with love.
