June 8- (Thursday)
Entering this card in several challenges. One focuses on travel, three on masculine cards and one on birthdays. I layered this little guys helmet with an acetate circle to add a bit of fun. The inside sentiment reads “Hope your birthday is out of this world!“  The free digi is from http://freedeariedollsdigistamps.blogspot.com

Made this card with one of the first stamps I ever bought. Used black pigment ink and embossing powder for the butterfly. After heat embossing, I lightly sponged yellow and orange die ink inside of the wings. The final touch was to sponge the entire butterfly with clear embossing ink, pour on the iridescent sparkle EP, shake off excess, heat and smile!
Since a butterfly is sometimes used to show new life, the card is really very appropriate for a sympathy card. And, I have a feeling that heaven will be full of butterflies in all colors of the rainbow!

    1. Thanks, Jane. I've had some time off from my job and have been a happy camper in my craft room. Plus, even when I am working, most nights I make time to create a few cards as part of a self-imposed "stress reduction program."
