Butterfly birthday wishes

Good morning peeps!
Today is Thursday meaning it's time for our new challenge at CAS-Colours and Challenges, and this week it's a yummy colour challenge.

I do so love this colour combo and decided it would be perfect to use with my Butterfly Basics stamps...yes, I am addicted to them!

I stamped my image in black Stazon, to make it waterproof, then coloured it with my Stampin' Write Markers and one of the SU! Watercolour Pens to help blend the colours.

I added two of butterflies stamped from the set and punched out using the Bitty Butterfly punch. The sentiment is a combination of two...'Birthday' is from Memorable Moments, and 'wishes' is part of the 'get well wishes' stamps from Teeny Tiny Sentiments. I simply inked each stamp with my Lost Lagoon Marker and perfectly positioned them using my Stamp-a-ma-Jig. Even though we now have Photopolymer stamps, I still used that fantastic tool loads!

I did use a couple of challenges for my inspiration...

Less Is More - This Makes Me Happy...I love butterflies and spring and flowers...they make me feel happy with everything, so I have tried to show that in my card.
