Hooray for Birthday Week - Day 2: Swallowtail

 Yeah for day 2 of my birthday week!! I actually got to go shopping for my mail birthday present from hubby yesterday and I treated myself to a new camera lens. It was so much fun getting to play around with all the settings and functions.

Anyway, back to today's card which is using one of my favourite stamps in the annual catalogue. I think I will cry if they retire this gorgeous Swallowtail stamp:

During this months team meeting, one of my gorgeous team members - Robyn Goldsmith from Goldys Hooked On Stampin, designed the make and take for us to do and she did this awesome water colour background where she choose two colours and then blended them together in the middle, creating a new colour. Now I do a fair bit of water colouring but I had never thought to do this, so this card was inspired by that

I used Wisteria Wonder and Marina Mist and then blurred the two colours in the middle to make a grayish colour. I then stamped my beautiful Swallowtail over the top in Basic Black.

I finished everything of with two butterflies cut from Silver foil and Silver glimmer and then a beautifully embossed sentiment in silver embossing powder.

So would you like to be part of the Birthday Fun!!!

Remember during my birthday week, for every order of $90* placed, either through me or my online store, using the Hostess Code: QDBFNAE6, will not only get to choose a Sale-a-Bration Freebie, but will also get a Birthday present from me!!  And you will go into the draw to win all seven cards that I will be show casing this week!!

Happy Crafting,
