Birthday Card ~ Non-traditional Colors ~ Color Dare #424

During the busy month of December we challenge you with using Traditional and Non-Tradtional Christmas colors. This challenge is all about using Non-Traditional colors! 

I love blues and paired with silver it's hard to my opinion! Our Close To My Heart Color of the Year is Blue Belle and it's gorgeous! I love how this card came together! I hope you do too! It was SO simple and easy to make. The butterfly is from our sticker sheet with the Lovely Paper Packet. I wanted to pop it up for dimension so I rubbed our Embossing Buddy on the back to take away the sticky. I bent the wings up, too. I put tape adhesive on the body and Thin 3D Foam Tape on the wings. This makes a perfect dimensional element! 

For the sentiment I stamped then added a wash of sparkle with the Blue Belle Shimmer Brush. Some companion Blue Belle Glitter Gems and that was it! Like I said...simple and easy!
