Happy Wishes!

Hi, friends!
Sharing another card I made recently for my post at Mudra. This one is quite different from my usual style and it has very bright & bold colours. Here's a look :

To create this card :
I first die-cut a card panel using an A2 sized die from one of my favorites, Gina Marie Designs. I have die-cut this panel using Canson Watercolour paper. I then distressed the entire panel using three different shades of Distress inks in shades of yellow.Added some white splatters using Picket Fence Distress Stain Spray, pink splatters using Picked Raspberry Distress ink and some golden splatters using Inka Gold.  I then added some texture using a stencil by MFT and Texture paste and sprinkled some Ranger Dry Glitter while the paste was wet to add some really amazing shine to it.

I die-cut a frame using black cardstock and clear embossed it thrice to give it a glossy effect using  Ranger Super Fine Clear embossing powder and Versamark ink.
I stamped the butterfly using Versamark embossing ink and embossed it using Ranger Gold Glitter Embossing powder from Ranger and heat set it.

I colored the butterfly using Picked Raspberry Distress ink. I then stamped the "Birthday" sentiment from the Butterflies set and added the "Wishes" part from another stamp from the previous release - Sentiment EssentialsI then colored the sentiment banner using Picked Raspberry Distress ink and foam mounted it. Finally added two black enamel dots on the sides of the sentiment banner to finish off my card.

I'm entering my card in the Simon Says Stamp- Anything Goes, Cards in Envy - Frame, Dream Valley - Embossing, Incy Wincy- All that Glitters (Have used glitter embossing powder on the butterfly & sentiment as well as white glitter on the stenciled background), and Love to Create- Anything Goes/ Mixed Media.

I hope you like this card of mine. Do leave me your comments/suggestions regarding it. I love to hear from you :)

Have a nice day everyone!
