Fluttering Birthday Card CCC48

Just another crazy summer weekend for my family. Thursday we had a birthday party at Chuck E Cheese for my niece, and we get to go to another CEC party tomorrow too! Thursday wasn't so bad, but I am sure I will have some sort of head pain by the time I leave there Saturday...lol. Tonight we took our girls to see the new Ice Age movie. We were supposed to go camping at our property, but the rain kept us home. So...off to the movies. It was the first time my 2 year old has gone...and she was GREAT! She is so into dinosaurs that she was fascinated by the movie. I highly recommend the movie...a lot of adult humor too.

Tonight I had to whip off a card for the party tomorrow. I wanted to add a couple challenges in with it too of course. I did the Cupcake Craft Challenge, as well as a challenge for the blog for my local stamp store. The CCC this week was "Blossoms & Butterflies"...perfect for me...since I think I have 10,000 sets of either flowers, butterflies, or both! The layout of the card is from the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff blog. The challenge was the create a tri-fold card. (11x4 1/4 w/scores @ 2 3/4 & 5 1/2). So here is what I came up with.

I used a purple CS for the base (which is the mother of the little girl's favorite color). The DSP is all from Stampin Up...don't remember what set though. The stamp set is from There She Goes. It was a gift from a friend. I thought it was perfect time to use it. The butterflies on the front, I stamped in Versamark ink then sprinkled a violet tinted glitter on them...although it is hard to see the violet in it...still pretty. Here is a close up...The green and purple butterfly I stamped 3 sets of. Then layered them for a 3-D effect. I also added some stickles, and liquid pearl to it. All the butterflies were attached with dimensionals. Here is a close up of the green butterfly.I used a gel pen to write the sentiments...other then the "Happy Birthday", which is from TAC Ordinary Greetings set. With the lighting, it was tough to get a good view of the hand written stuff. On the front is says..."Just fluttering by...". Second panel says "to wish Nia a very...".

Well that is it for tonight. Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a great weekend. We are also throwing a little camping trip in tomorrow...since we couldn't go tonight. Always a good time. I am really looking forward to some S'mores!!!!
