In Need of Birthday Cards

I'm busy trying to restock with birthday cards, mainly boy and girl ones but chucking in an adult one here and there to use up coloured images.
Another card with The Ton Butterfly Transformation . I do love this butterfly especially on vellum as I seem to colour best on vellum when using my Zigs. Again no water used, just the Nuvo Glitter Gloss Aqua Brush. In this instance I have managed to achieve an amazing dark mix on the wing of the butterly.

I heat embossed in Gold this time and check out the overload of shimmer. I nearly (and was close to the bin when I say this) binned this. I tried at first for a dark blue with the shimmer it just didn't work and looked washy dark and patchy and the vellum started to warp. I walked away that night and came back the next day and thought cant hurt to add pink, didnt look much better but I kept at it with blue (Dark) pink (Vibrant) and purple (Deep) and after a time it cam together, the vellum settled and I was happy again.
The flowers were quick and easy.
I then fussy cut, added to a white card front that I embossed with a wood grain look. Then came the 'Happy Birthday' die cut in gold mirror card and a few sparkly gems from Studio Katia.

This card I have used an image I coloured with Copics, definitely girl based. This I coloured during one of The Daily Marker Colouring Challenges (boy do I have a lot of those).

This cutie is from Mo's Digital Pencil.
I was going through all my pre cut die cut Happy Birthday words
and noticed I hadn't used this one yet as it was always too big for the coloured image. So this time I put a bit of thought to it. I decided to attach towards the side of the card as I know it will fit in a bigger envelope. I added a layer of pink vellum behind the die cut and then I even went a step further and found my bow die and made a vellum bow attached at the top with a big pink gem.

See you tomorrow with the reminder card for the Flower Challenge this month.
