Birthday Butterfly

Happy Birthday Sis!

Here's a card I just sent off to my new Sister-In-Law. I hope she likes it! On the inside I stamped the word Sister!

Stamps - Butterfly from Stampendous; Saying from Close To My Heart; Stampin'UP! Petite Patterns stamped on cardbase.
Paper - Pretty In Pink, Lavender Lace and Whisper White cardstock from Stampin'UP! Patterned Paper DCWV Poises Glitter Print Violet Squiggle Poises.
Ink - Versamark and I can't remember what color I used to stamp Happy Birthday...sorry! I used 3 colors on the butterfly....can't remember what colors I used there...I'm bad! I also used a couple different colors of ink and inked up the purple layer under the butterfly. I wanted it to blend in more with he patterned paper and give it a softer look.
Misc - After stamping cardbase background stamp in Versamark, I smeared White Shimmer Chalk all over and got a really cool shimmer effect. I used a glue pen to trace on the butterfly and sprinkle with glitter. Pink Swarovski flat back crystals were attached with Crystal Effects. Those crystals really add a nice bling! Butterfly layer is attached with dimensionals. The rest is pretty self explanatory :)
