A purple Butterfly Birthday Card Plus a CAS Flower Birthday Card

A mother from my son's School has a birthday, she lives not so far from our home too...I made this purple birthday card for her...

For the gold stripe cause I dont have any gold paper more, I colored the white paper with gold water color from my new ink Kuretake Gansai Tambi (see this post for the picture of my watercolor set) from Japan. 

I choose Butterfly stamp from Hero Arts and also colored with the water color. I love the effect of the gold on the butterfly wings.

I choose old design paper I ever bought in purple and gold and the flower cut out is from Billie A. in the USA, many thanks sweet Billie to send me some of this sweet cut out.

Here is the complete picture of my card:

I dont want to make a new post in a day :) also here is another card I made last night and already make a foto today with a little bit sunshine :)

I made this card for my lovely neighbour...she will have a birthday in 2 days...I made as simple as I can, I colored the flower with Distress Ink Spun Sugar, it is sooo soft the color and it looks like a ROSE color :)

I only use my score pal to make three lines as accent for the white paper (card base)

  6. Wow Monika the butterfly card is perfect great color choices and the butterfly really stands out on the white doily die. I love it. The butterfly looks like it's about to take flight. Love it.
