Outlines - Birthday Butterfly

Today the challenge at Outlines was to make a Birthday card. Simple enough! Join us for a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate. Find all the details on the The Outlines Blog.

 No Copics today. Just simple stamping and cutting out. I stamped the butterfly twice. trimming the outer layer off the top butterfly. I used Dimensional Silicone to pop it up. I FINALLY used some of the Cuttlebug Embossing Strips... I have a whole container full of them and they were out of sight... I moved them to hopefully a more popular spot on the desk! 
I added a few black Swarovski Crystals on the embossed strip. On the butterfly body I added Black Viva Pearl Pen. I used a toothpick to apply it to the skinny antennae and also used the toothpick to poke at the body after applying so it would not have a smooth finish. I used a Square Nestie to cut out the sentiment and added additional layers using Perfect Layers Rulers. I used Scor Pal tape to adhere the jute string wrapped around the card front and then topped it off with a bow, cutting off the bow tails. Finished card size is an A2 and it opens at the bottom, tent style.
