Soho Birthday

I just LOVE the new Soho Subway Designer Series Paper!  It is so much fun and easy vintage!  I CASEd this card from Ilina Crouse.  It is hard to tell but the Happy Birthday label is stamped twice, once in Early Espresso and once in Crisp Cantaloupe.  I punched out the Early Espresso and taped it to the card.  I hand cut the Happy Birthday on the inner line (so you can see the Espresso lines) and adhered it with a Dimensional.  Enjoy!

Card Stock - Baked Brown Sugar, Island Indigo, Very Vanilla, Soho Subway DS
Ink - Early Espresso, Crisp Cantaloupe

Butterfly Moments

I have seen this card design time and time again so I attempted it myself.  And I love it.  I probably could have spent more time matching up my middle butterfly with the paper though.  Next time :D

I just love making butterflies "fly" off the page with a well placed Dimensionals.
