May All Your Birthdays Be Happy

Hello My Crafting Friends,
Happy Sunday!  I've done a lot of shopping at Micheal's and Hobby Lobby. So many great sales going on. I even found a punch by EK Success for $4.00 I found 3 stamp sets by Recollection for 2.99 regular 9.99 a price. So I got some great deals this week. This card was made for a Birthday card swap I did over at Mark's Finest Paper. Each month we get together and use a MFP stamp and create four cards one being for the host and three you get back along with a free mini stamp set for the month. If you would like to join use for this month hop go HERE! You will be ask to sign up for the site. 
But no worries you can sign up for Mark's Finest Paper for free. And you get a free mini stamp and you can use that stamp to enter our challenges we have Monday through Saturday. And you get more chance to win more MFP stamps. What a great deal!

This stamp is from Mark's Finest Papers Birthday Mini 2011. I have to say I have been enjoying stamps with insects. For my card today I found this really cool stamping technique online. I had the link save and cant remember where. I took the butterfly stamp and put the smooth surface on my block. So instead of using the right side flip it over and use the back side. This creates a solid look. Then go back and stamp the regular side and to get the details image. 

I used Gina K Design 80lb paper. I stamped in the solid colors first with Jenni Bowlin: No.3 Chili Powder, No.5 Chicken Feed, No.6 Stick Candy, No.13 Lavender Sachet, No.14 Speckled Egg. To create the beautiful colors. I use PTI card stock for my sentiment and add some cord. 

Happy Crafting AJ-
