Another Butterfly Watercolored Card and Balloons Birthday Card (in Black and Gold)

I made again a card using the CASE this Sketch challenge. This time I used Pink and Yellow for my butterfly. I Sponged a bit pink also on the top right and bottom left of my card. I colored the butterfly Diecuts with Peerless Transparent Watercolor.

I added the washi tape on the pink stripe. The sentiment is a sticker I have won from Simon Says Stamp Blog past time. I used the Embossing folder from Taylored Expression.

Lovely challenges I love to join with this card are:

I also made this card using the SU stamp. This set I have got from my lovely friend Flo for my Bday gift. Dear Flo many many thanks for this lovely stamp set´, I love it much. First I diecuts some HAPPY = 8x. I want to make a BG made by Diecuts Happy.

Here is the finish Background paper with diecuts:

I stamped the balloon one embossed with Gold E.P and the other one in Black. Using MFT dies I cut the main Image.

The Birthday Dies is from Create A Smile and it is 4x Gold papers stacked together.
