Happy Happy Birthday

 Supplies:  Quickutz Polka Dot embossing folder, Kraft card blank, 
PTI sentiment, die cut, Dark Chocolate - ink and buttons, Hero Arts digikit, 
ribbon, embroidery floss.

Got this new embossing folder by Quickutz recently and love it... polka dots.  I used it here on a simple kraft card blank and then added the sentiment and buttons from Papertrey Ink together with a butterfly from Hero Arts digikit - flutterbies.  I threaded orange ribbon through the button on the butterfly and then coloured it with a copic to match the dark chocolate buttons.  I applied a very liberal layer of glossy accents to the butterfly prior to assembly and he curled as he dried.  To make him "flatter" - I simply pressed him down and created a crackle effect.  This month's challenge on Hero Arts is "Everything Autumn."  Be sure to check it out here.

Thanks so much for peeking and I hope you have a wonderful day.

Love the embossing. I haven't used Kraft card a lot, but you've inspired me... very effective, especially with the black and orange to set it off. Beautiful.
