Happy Birthday, Violet

I made this hybrid card for my friend Violet, who celebrates her birthday this weekend.

The card front is a digi page from Fee Jardine called Fallin 4 You Mixed Up Papers from Sweet Shoppe Designs. I added paper from Making Memories and a Hambly Studios sticker on top of the card front.

I again used the digital cutting kit from Jen Allyson called Project Cuts - Cut Out Card to cut the card front and insert using my QuicKutz Silhouette.

The butterfly was created by using a brayer to add color onto glossy paper. I stamped a woodgrain stamp using VersaMark ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder.

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes (SU!), woodgrain stamp (Hero Arts)

Other: clear embossing powder, button (Making Memories), twine (SU!), foam tape
