Is It Too Late ~ PP62 & Page Maps

I guess I'll start my post with a it too late to send a birthday card almost two months after someone's birthday! Do you ever do that, all of a sudden you realized you missed the day or even the month? what do I do...just let it continue to go by even though it's naggin' at you...or send a very belated birthday blessing...hmmmm....that is my question ~ now on to my card!
The Paper Players have a great challenge this week and I can't believe that I'm playing along ~ summer is extremely busy for me with family, gardening, visiting, camping....and sadly, I don't really get a chance to play in my studio...I'm so blessed that my garden is my other happy place!
Paper Players 62 is wanting a Birthday did they know what was tugging at my heart!

I then followed a sketch from Page Maps...and here is a picture of my card!

~ and the inside of the card ~

I created my butterfly using the 'baby wipe technique' ~ What fun...I really enjoyed this technique ~ I then laid the butterfly down on my Versa Mark Pad and inked it up, covered it with Clear EP and set it with the heat gun! Stunning!!!

I chose my colors using my color coach... I love this tool, I guess my other question to self would be....why in the world didn't I get this fabulous tool sooner! It is wonderful and a must have in my studio!

  1. Denise, I don't think it is ever too late to send off some birthday wishes! I'm sure the recipient will appreciate the thought, even if it is belated. And, hey, it is just an excuse to keep the celebration going a little longer, right? :) Your card is gorgeous! i just love all of the rich colors in the butterfly and that beautiful banner sentiment. Very pretty! Thanks so much for joining us at the Paper Players this week! *hugs*

  2. So glad to see you playing with us today, Denise! I would gander that even IF your card is a tad bit late, this beauty would be appreciated regardless! Hope you're having a great summer and enjoying those grandsons!

  3. I've done it too and sent it really late. *smile* I love your card! That butterfly is one of my favorites. Hugs,

  4. Great color combo and a beautiful butterfly! It doesn't get much better than that. I agree, my color coach is my best it! Thanks so much for playing along with the Paper Players this week!

  5. Beautiful card, Denise! And it is never too late to let someone know you are thinking of them. They are sure to love this gorgeous butterfly! Thanks for playing with The Paper Players!

  6. Ok, so I don't think my post actually went through because I had the wrong identity turned on:(
    It's great to see you posting again my friend.
    This is a gorgeous card and your "baby wipe butterfly" is beautiful! Whoever receives this is going to love it. Hope you had a good week.
