Birthday Blessings – by Deb Saaranen

Deb’s birthday card today just amazed me. One would think the perfectly matched butterflies came with the paper collection. Not so! Deb stamped and colored those butterflies to match the paper – totally blew me away! Take a look and see if you agree:

Isn’t this GORGEOUS!

The butterflies are glazed with UTEE for that special, glassy/shiny appearance.

And take note of the beautiful ribbon treatment – applied easily with Scor Tape.

This card is a bit larger at about 7 x 4″. I really like the elongated style!

And here’s the card inside.

I’m really partial to a beautifully stamped inside, made so easy with this stamp set. You can mix and match stamps to vary your message.

You can find Deb’s post on her blog here.
