Birthday Card for Ariadna

I have a project today using the Spellbinders Labels Twenty dies with the JustRite Stampers Kindness set.  This card was made for a co-worker's girlfriend who just adores green.

The frames and sentiment were all stamped in Handsome Hunter and sponging was done in Sage Shadow.  Leaves were cut from Sage Shadow paper using the Sizzix Flowers, Branches & Leaves die.  A Sizzix Scrollmark embossing folder was used on the Handsome Hunter background paper.  The butterfly was created with the exotic butterfly die from Cheery Lynn Designs and sponged with Brilliance Pearlescent Ice Blue & Sage Shadow.

A fairytale teal rose, sheer aqua ribbon, and rhinestones add a bit of elegance.

The inside sentiment by PSX was stamped in Handsome Hunter and embossed with clear embossing powder.  The flourish was stamped in Sage Shadow.

I'm very late posting this card as Ariadna's birthday was back in April.  I hope she had a wonderful day.  I am linking with Make It Monday and Stampin' for the Weekend.

Donna, I like your cards that I've seen on the JustRite site. Your cards are lovely while remaining PRACTICAL. That is, they do not require special envelopes or boxes for mailing because they are NOT square or too bulky. Your designs are not predictable. Each card is unique, and they are not overly-decorated with thick, large bows and trailing ribbons and dripping pearls. Your cards can be easily mailed, and it takes more creativity to create designs to fit standard rectangular cards than it does to create a design of any size and then cut a 10x10 card to fit the design.
