Elegant Butterfly Birthday Card

Hello fellow night owls! I realized late this evening that the Retro Sketches current challenge closes tonight. So, I did a little late night card making. I combined three challenges to get this Elegant Butterfly Birthday Card. Here are the three challenges that inspired this card:

Elegant Butterfly Birthday Card Supplies*:
  • Paper: Whisper white, old olive, and so saffron card stock by Stampin' Up! and a random piece of pinkish card stock from my stash (source unknown).
  • Stamps: Papillon Potpourri (123757) and Teeny Tiny Wishes (115370).
  • Inks: Classic stampin' pad in rich razzleberry
  • Other Stuff: Fancy fan embossing folder, elegant butterfly punch (127526), 1-1/4" scallop circle punch, 1/4" stitched grosgrain ribbon in rich razzleberry, modern label punch (119849), word window punch (119857), basic jewels, and stampin' dimensionals.
 * All supplies by Stampin' Up! unless noted.
