Hi there!

I have a couple of reasons for making this card today. 

I was really inspired by Hazel's card HERE that I wanted to CASE it. I had some left over smooshed panels that happened to be red and that was perfect for the challenge over at ATCAS that went live a couple of hours ago. PLUS Happy Little Stampers is the sponsor of this challenge!

I made a few little changes to the design of this card compared to Hazel's. I added a butterfly as the die cut instead of the 'Happy'. I also have just got in these new enamel dots at HLS and couldn't wait to break them out.

I haven't had much time in my craft room lately but got to have a quick play tonight. Even though it is after 8pm and I have a rule for not taking photos of my cards at night, I really wanted to get this one done and dusted. I used my phone and it worked out quite nicely. Not my usual style of photography but it did the job :)

I used the following products from Happy Little Stampers

Butterfly Birthday    Fun Birthday Sentiments    'Neutrals' Enamel Dots    Butterfly Dies    Mini Mister / Spray Bottle (20ml)

My background was created by smooshing Brushos (Scarlet) into watercolour paper. There is a touch of gold Perfect Pearls in there too.

I embossed my sentiment and the butterfly.

Here is the challenge at ATCAS
