Butterfly Birthday cards with Buttons

Today's Ways to Use it challenge was to use Buttons on our cards. I made the background paper with green ink, and a leafy flower stamp. I then Ink-Sprayed-Smashed it with blue and turquoise markers. The top card used Layers of Color butterflies, and Joyful Noise set. I stamped the keyboard on ribbon and I stamped the music notes on the button. I used a rubon for the butterflies trail. I used the Happy Birthday from MFP's Daffodil and Anise set. For the bottom card, I stamped the butterfly from MFP's Daffodil and Anise set along with the sentiment and the Anise flowers at the bottom. I added little paper flowers and buttons and pearls.

  1. MariLynn these are both so pretty! I just love how you stamped on the ribbon and button!!! Your background is gorgeous! I'm trying to figure out the marker spray smoosh technique... I've done ink in a plastic bag and smooshed but I think this is different? I'd love to hear more as it's gorgeous!!! Love the second one too! Your flowers are beautiful too! Wow! You are so clever and resourceful MariLynn! You really bless me!

  2. MariLynn these are both beautiful - the one with the purple base really appeals to me :-)
