Butterfly Basics Birthday HSSSC206

Pin It Now! I thoroughly enjoyed myself making today's card!  I love layers, and these are subtle, but there are plenty of them.
The sentiment panel is made up of several stamps from Butterfly Basics, then spritzed, then pierced with the coordinating piercing template.  The butterfly is a leftover wax paper layer that I used so that all the little bits don't stick in the thinlit!  I love how it's so very thin and translucent, but doesn't add bulk. I also added a sponged layer of roses stenciled with a paper laser cut sheet from this spring's Artisan Embellishment Kit.  
The sketch we are offering at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week is a great one. 
Inside, just a couple of DSP strips to complement the front.

INK: Mossy Meadow, Daffodil Delight, Blushing Bride, Lost Lagoon, Pistachio Pudding, Whisper White Craft
