Rainbow Butterfly Birthday Card

Every week at Splitcoaststampers.com they have a featured stamper.  I was selected to be one last year and it was an honor.  This weeks featured stamper is nerdybeth.  Typically you select one of the FS card to showcase and design and used it to inspire you to create a similar card.  I chose to case https://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/2745486?&cat=500&ppuser=157841 where she used rainbow colored butterflies.  For my card I pulled out my Simon Says Stamp Butterflies Stencil.

It was a simple card to create.  I used Distress Oxide Inks to sponge the butterflies using a finger dauber onto some Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock.  Crystal Stickles was used to add some sparkle.  Different colored sequins were scattered in the areas where the stencil had small dots.  I decided to stamp the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Best Ever with Picked Raspberry Oxide Ink to add that touch of pink.  To finish the card I die cut it using a My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle, added some Darice Sticky Back Foam to the back of the panel and adhered it to a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  A clean and simple card, but a rainbow punch of color.
