Crafty Cardmakers Challenge # 174 Birthdays.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Hi! back again to tell you that it's time for another challenge over
at Crafty Cardmakers.

Pam is hosting our Birthdays challenge, so let's see your ideas for birthdays.
As usual you can enter anything you fancy, it doesn't have to just be cards, as long as it meets the challenge, and doesn't exceed the 15 total challenges entered rule!

I am here today to show you a birthday card:

made with this Masterboard:

And yes you have seen this Masterboard before as this card is made with a left-over section. I generally make an A3 piece so there is plenty to go at and it means that there is usually left-overs for when you just need something quick.
So here goes!

I used a Tim Holtz Thinlits die to cut out the swirly pattern and then mounted the Masterboard onto sparkly black card which you can just about see on the close-up here.

The butterfly was stamped onto card and Velum and  heat embossed, white glitter on one and black on the other. I mounted the two butterflies on top of each other to give some depth to the card after adding black and white brads to the body section.

On the inside I used some of the swirl pieces removed from the die-cutting. Next I distressed the edge of the card.
Before mounting it all onto the card blank, I attached some thin black ribbon to the corners.
Finally, pearls and Tim Holtz text to complete the design.

I hope you will pop over to see what the rest of the DT have been up to and maybe join in the challenge.
I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
 Happy crafty card making.
