Blue Butterflies Birthday Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

Hi everyone :-D 

Today it's my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles.

I made this Blue Butterflies Birthday Card.

I used gorgeous Jane's Doodles Butterflies stamp set.

I stamped butterflies on a white watercoloring paper and colored them with Stabilo pens (markers) creating Ombré Effect on each butterfly.

I'm new in coloring with markers, if I don't count coloring when I was a child, and I learned a lot from great video tutorials by Julia Altermann, how to color with Stabilo pens.

This card was a birthday card for my sister in-law. I wanted sentiment to be on Croatian, and since I don't have any sentiments on Croatian, I made one on my computer. It says 'Happy Birthday'. I printed the sentiment with black background, cut out banner and glued 3-D foams behind it, because I wanted sentiment to pop up.

I glued colored panel on a black card base, glued sentiment on the card and embellished it with blue and silver sequins and rhinestones I got in my stash.

Card dimensions are 107 mm x 139 mm (4 1/4" x 5 1/2").
