Best Wishes

Wendy W., the owner and designer of Repeat Impressions is having a birthday this week.  I created this card for her using some fabulous Repeat Impressions stamps.
This is the first time I've used this little butterfly.  I have used the larger one a lot and I LOVE it, I think this little one will be high up there on the list, too.  I heat embossed the sentiment with clear embossing powder after inking it up with versamark and then chocolate brown before stamping it.  The versamark helps keep the other ink wet enough to work with the embossing powder.  The white circle was in my bits and pieces stash, I trimmed it down a little to fit my image and the sketch better.

Stamps: Repeat Impressions "5123 W. Butterfly Sil. (sm)" and "1103 W. Best Wishes"
Dies: Spellbinders "Classic Circles, large"

So pretty! The butterfly matches the pp strip perfectly and is almost like it morphed from the paper. Thanks for joining in challenge 35 at YNS!
