Uniko - 9th Birthday Blog Hop and Linky Party

Hello Friends, 

It's birthday month over at Uniko this month and we're celebrating it's 9th birthday with blog hop and linky party! If you fancy joining the fun then follow the link to the Uniko blog HERE where you'll find all the details of how to enter and what prizes you may win. 

Good luck!!!

Here's my birthday card using the dies from the English Country Garden Butterflies set with a sentiment from the Wonderful Day stamp set. In fact I've just realised that my previous card, for the challenge last week, also featured Butterflies....maybe it's hopeful for an early spring!

I used the butterfly dies, cutting them into my card panel then tracing around each butterfly directly onto the card front prior to masking and inking the butterfly apertures with some pretty zingy distress ink colours. I decided to go with a shaker card so added some acetate and foam tape to give the beads, pearls and sequins space to move. (Unfortunately some have stuck themselves to the foam tape on which the front panel is mounted - despite vigorous shaking!!!). Lastly I stamped the sentiment on a die-cut strip and adhered it with foam tape, adding a few coordinating sequins for some birthday bling!

I hope you feel inspired to join the party and why not visit my crafty team buddies who have some superb birthday designs for you to check out too - the links are as follows:
