Stampin' Up! Go to Greetings Birthday Card ~ Sketch Saturday

Hello & Welcome!  Today's card was created for Sketch Saturday's Challenge #748.  This is the first day of the challenge and you have two weeks to play along.  (Challenge ends April 19)  The optional twist for this card challenge is to incorporate a food or drink theme.  

I've been wanting to use these Paper Butterfly Accents, and thought this sketch was ideal for them, so I skipped the food/drink theme this time.  In fact, the very first thing I did when making this card was to choose the 3 butterflies I wanted to use. Then, I used a Mini Blending Brush to add a touch of Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape inks.  

When that was done, I started putting this sweet card together.  The butterflies in the corner were attached with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals that I trimmed to fit in strategic places behind the butterflies.  Before I adhered the middle butterfly with Liquid Glue, I added a bit of Wink of Stella to it, which gave it a subtle shimmer and spread the ink around a little to make a bit more of a contrast.

Go to Greetings really has been my 'go to' for sentiments, which makes it super sad that this stamp set is retiring soon!  After stamping the smallest birthday greeting from this set in Gorgeous Grape ink, I cut it out with a die cut from Countryside Corners Dies.  

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today!  I hope you are able to play along with this month's sketch.  Don't forget to visit the original blog post at Sketch Saturday to find even more inspiration from the Design Team.

Happy Stamping!
