Say "Happy Birthday" with Butterflies!

Hi, guys! TGIF!  It is another brutal day temperature-wise here in NYC.  We have a real hot weekend ahead as well.  I am really hoping it breaks soon.  I am not sure if my garden or I can stand much more of it.  We are both wilting pretty badly.

For today, I thought I would share a card I made for my friend's husband's birthday.  Christine loves butterflies and that they always remind her husband of her.  So, I made this card.  I used three butterflies to symbolize the 3 members of their young family. I heat embossed the background and it really shines nicely in real life.  I really love the Zing embossing powders.  I find the colors are so vibrant and bold.


Supplies:
Stamps: CC rubber stamps (Sentiment), Stamp Camp (Background)
Paper: Hero Arts Note card in Pool, Husk card stock The Ink Pad NYC, Gina K Designs White, Lilybeedesign (Buttercup),True Hemp Hemptique
Ink: Versamark, Archival Ink
Misc.: Zing Embossing Powder, Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch, Gems

Christine loved the card when I gave it to her.  Wishing Seth a very Happy Birthday!

I hope you all have a great weekend and find some time to do something you love.  You can bet I will!

What a beautiful card! Butterflies have a very special place in my heart, as when I see them they make me think of my baby girl Molly who left this world too soon. Thank you for sharing!

Winnie, what a beautifull card! I always love butterflies and this card has a bit of a spring feeling about it. I really like it! We had some hot days here aswell. although it rained the whole day yesterdag it's still very hot. I guess those are the days I dislike the most; rain + hot at the same time. O well, before we know it summer is over and we can start complaining about the rain and snow and storms... ;-P Greetz Dee

Very creative! I love the way you beaded the bodies of the butterflies and the knotting. I like the symbolism behind the butterflies too. Thank you for the sweet comment you left on my blog. Blessings!
