Watercolor Butterfly Birthday Wishes

Hello! As so many people are right now - I am still loving any opportunity to use watercolors on my cards - love the punch it gives, and yet is so simple at the same time!

I made this one for the current CAS-ual Friday's Challenge - Must Love Watercolor:

I used two different Altenew stamp sets on this card - Ori Kami for the butterfly, and Label Love for the sentiment. I stamped the butterfly on my watercolor paper, and added a wash of purple watercolor over the top. Once that dried, I added Glossy Accents over the butterfly, then let that dry. The sentiment was heat embossed, then hand trimmed out. I added a bundle of silver thread under before attaching the sentiment with foam adhesive. Finished off with some DCWV pattern paper and a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins. I love how the shiny embossed sentiment and the Glossy Accents accent the watercolor with a wet look - such a perfect compliment to watercolors, especially with a few sequins to finish it off!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!!!
