Butterfly Birthday

While it is still to early for butterflies here in Iowa, the colors for the current Paper Players challenge had me thinking that Crisp Cantaloupe butterflies would look really pretty on a Crumb Cake card.  Along with the Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum, I'd say a breath of Spring has come my way.

To color the flowers and leaves on the vellum, I used the So Saffron and Wild Wasabi Stampin' Write Markers.  It's so easy to put a little color on the vellum.  You color on the back, flip it over and attach it to your card.  It does make for a pretty background.

Stamp Sets:  Endless Birthday Wishes, Nature's Perfection; Ink:  Crisp Cantaloupe; Stampin' Write Markers:  So Saffron, Wild Wasabi; Accessories & Tools:  Elegant Butterfly Punch, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Adhesive Sheets (Scrapbook Adhesives), Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive, Stampin' Trimmer
All Stampin' Up!® products unless otherwise noted.

The colors are from the current challenge at The Paper Players.
