Happy 85th Birthday Mom

Yesterday was my mom's 85th birthday!  Today we are celebrating at my house with just the grandchildren and my husband and me.  I wanted to make a special card for her and remembered I had this die.  I purchased it after seeing a card Jennifer McGuire created for the Summer Card Camp class from Online Card Classes.  I just had to have it, but of course, it has never been used until now!  I cased the card Jennifer created with a few changes.
The die was cut from white card stock that I doubled up for more stability (this die is very fragile).  The butterflies are attached at different places on the die, but I cut them off so I could place them elsewhere.  I covered the die with Versamark ink and Verdigris embossing powder.  I did this twice.  I ran a piece of card stock through an embossing folder and adhered it to the card front.  I cut another piece and embossed the sentiment on it then sprayed it with gold mist.  The butterflies were colored with copic markers and then embossed with a hologram embossing powder.  It's very sparkly in person.

That's it!  Thanks for stopping by!  I'll be back tomorrow with a Just Us Girls photo inspiration challenge!  See you then!

Congratulations with your mom's birthday! Hope you have a great day!
Love the card! It is a pitty that the sparkle on a photo isn't showing that great. Good idea to have totally different backgrounds on one card!
Bought a simmular die myself two weeks ago and it is stil laying on my to do something else with it instead of placing it elsewhere everytime I'm going to make something... Hugs, Gerrina
