Sparkle for your birthday . . .

Happy Monday All!
It's been a slow start to my crafting day today but finally I got around to making a card that has been on my mind.  

A few weeks ago I spotted a CAS style card out in blogland that I thought I would like to case ... THEN my computer started messing up and before I could save the link to pop back to and give credit to, I had to shut my system down and lost the link.  So, now I only have my memory to rely on (not good!  lol).

Here is my card which is similar to the one that caught my attention.
I struggle with CAS design style but I think the butterfly helps ease my pain of 'too much white space' LOL.


The card I was inspired by had Happy Birthday stamped 3 times
with a smaller butterfly accent.  But after just watching a video and refreshing
my memory on this glitter inlay technique that was the direction I took.

I stamped the sentiment 3 times, but my butterfly was a bit large and covered (in my estimation)
too much of the last sentiment line so I added the stamp two more times at the top.
There ... that's better!!  LOL


If you know me at all, you know I DO NOT LIKE working with glitter!!
It always turns out SO PRETTY but yikes ... what a mess it makes ...
or should I say "I MAKE!"

A few challenges I'd like to share in today are:

As always . . .
