Butterfly Birthday Wishes - Stamping 411 #259

I got a delivery yesterday in the middle of a thunderstorm, so just had to try out some of the new products today using the sketch challenge with Stamping 411here

Here is my card:


When I saw the sketch at Stamping 411 I knew immediately I wanted to use the new butterfly punch.  First I punched out a butterfly using the twitterpated designer paper and then using vellum.  The vellum I embossed with the polka dot embossing folder afterwhich I sponged the edges with Baja Breeze ink.
The vellum butterfly was attached to the top of the designer paper one and pearls attached to the center and the top of each wing. Dimensionals were used to attach the butterflies to a 1 1/4" Pretty in Pink circle. The wings were then separated to give the appearance that the butterfies were about to take off.
These circle units were attached to a panel of Whisper White card stock that had been embossed using the Chevron embossing folder.  The panel was backed with Island Indigo card stock.  This unit was attached to a Baja breeze layer embossed with the Fancy Fan embossing folder.
The 1/4" Whisper White stitched grosgrain ribbon was colored with an Island Indigo marker.

Here's the complete recipe:

Stamps: Itty Bitty Banners
Inks: Baja Breeze, Basic Black, Island Indigo marker
Papers: Island Indigo, Whisper White, Baja Breeze, Pretty in Pink, Vellum, Twitterpated designer series paper
Accessories: Polka Dot embossing folder, Fancy Fan embossing folder, Chevron embossing folder, Butterfly punch, 1/4" Whisper White stitched grosgrain ribbon, pearls, dimensionals, 1 1/4" circle punch
