Seize the Birthday - Sunshine as the Topping & CASology #210 Sunshine

A card for STB this week



I tried to match the butterfly with the background colors but it just didn't have enough pop so decided on this pretty blue.  I like how it turned out.
This is a technique that I saw on Jennifer McGuire's Blog 
Faus Dimension with Stamps and Stencils.

Tim Holtz Rays stencil, Distress Inks, Mustard Seed, Ripe Persimmon, Dried Marigold, Tumbled Glass & Blueprint Sketch
The sentiment was stamped in black, then in Versamark, and then soft off a little and stamped again with Versamark then embossed with Clear EP.  The background is sponged all over then you stake the stencil and sponge over that.
Little clear Wink of Stella over butterfly.
