Blue Butterfly

This card was inspired by my friend who had made one many years ago.  She is such an awesome artist, which makes it difficult to stamp with her sometimes because she is so darn good, and my stuff pales in comparison next to her "works of art".  But I learn a lot from her and take her artsy ideas with me.  So Sara, this card is for you (not literally, just figuratively!).
The stamp background (Sketched Daisy) and butterfly image (Sketched Butterfly) are both by Stampendous.  I used colored pencil and colored in the small hearts on the background and the butterfly.  I then put crystal lacquer on the hearts to make them stand out a little bit and add some sort of extra "dimension".  I then stamped a simple Happy Birthday on the inside.
