HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PAM!

 
My best friend from high school is celebrating her birthday today.  This is the card I made and sent to her.
 
The stamps are from the new Stampin' Up! Butterfly Basics set.  The picture doesn't show it but I stamped a "honeycomb" type design on the layer using River Rock ink as kind of a shadow.  The next step was to add the fern leaf.  I used Wild Wasabi ink and stamped it off once lightly before adding it.  I wanted it to appear to be behind the flower and since I would be coloring in the flower design, I didn't have to mask an area.  The flower was colored with Tangerine Tango and Wild Wasabi.  The Memory Box butterfly was the final touch before matting the design.
 
I always appreciate your comments so while you are here, let me know what you think.  Thanks for stopping by!
