Butterfly birthday wishes

I'm having fun playing with mask/stencils at the moment. In this card I tried to get an ombré effect by using various shades of distress inks. I then cut out the banner panel by hand and stitched around the edges to echo the circle die.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
Keep it Simple - challenge #47 Ombré
AAA cards - challenge #17 CREATE stencil style
A Blog Named Hero - challenge #50 Ombré

Materials used:-
Lawn Fawn "stitched party banners" circle die
Butterfly - Sizzix framelits die
Stencil - Creative Expressions
Sentiment - Stampin Up "so happy for you" set
Distress inks - tumbled glass, broken china and peacock feathers
Coredinations card

Thank you for visiting my blog - I really appreciate it!
