Happy Birthday

I was back in my scrap pile again.  I found a background resist piece created awhile ago.  I decided to finish it off in completely different colors and create a card for the Moxie Fab World - Stamp It Challenge - Birthdays. 

The original resist was stamped in lavender and clear embossed.  I decided to go to the rusts, browns and yellows. 

The background is a definitions stamp from Hero Arts.  I stamped over that with the beautiful Hero Arts Classic Fabric Design using versamark.  I head embossed with clear embossing powder.  I then sponged over the surface with Rusty Hinge and sponged the edges with Walnut stain.

I then took a piece of tissue paper and spritzed it with yellow and orange glimmer mist.  Sponged the edges with the brown dye ink.  I repeated the process to create the background for my butterflies and sentiment.
The butterflies are from the Stampers Anonymous Attic Treasures set. The sentiment is Inkadinkado.

My favorite part was adding the twine and stringing the butterflies into the twine.

Hope your Monday is off to a wonderful start!
