Hello, Today we are celebrating Rhonda's Birthday. You can stop by Rhonda's blog and wish her Happy Birthday here http://craftingwithblue.blogspot.com/ Rhonda asked that we make a projects with butterflies and not to use  pink and purple. I am using a digi by Create With TLC. You can find it here http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/studio/tlc4lo

Copics used are Y17, Y21, Y06- flowers, YG61, YG63- grass, and stems, E44, YG61, Yg63- trees, BG000- sky, E33, R24- house, BG05, B21, B23- fairy wings, E000, E00, E01, E02- skin, YR21, YR24, Y00- hair, B21, B23, B26- fairy's clothing, BG01, BG05, B23- butterfly.

Clear Stardust was used as accents on the digi.

The embossing is done using Cuttlebug D'vine Swirls embossing folder. The paper used for the embossing is sprayed with iridescent glitter varnish by Crafter's Companion.

The pearls are from Miriam's Crafting Supplies. You can find them here http://miriamscraftingblog.com/supplies.html

The ribbon is from Michales Spool of Ribbon.

The papers are by Bazzill- blues, Georgia Pacific- white.

The card is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".

                                               Here are the scrapbook pages.

The butterflies are by Oak Pond. You can find them here http://www.etsy.com/shop/OakPondCreations?ref=si_shop. I printed the butterfly in 4 sizes, two each size.I used Ballet Blue ink pad by Stampin Up and light olive by Studio g. Using sponge applicators I sponged the ink on the butterflies over lapping the colors. I then spritzed the butterflies with water allowing the colors to blend. then re-inked the edges. Once they were dry I cut them out. I then used green and sky Stardust Gelly Roll pens as accents.

The papers are by Recollections- light green, DCWV- green print, Georgia Pacific- white.

The rick rack and ribbon are by Recollections.

The sentiment I typed and printed on the Computer. I thought the words were perfect for a Birthday or any special day.

The journaling spots are done using blue metallic Gelly Roll pen.

Here are the tags and extra butterflies.

  The butterflies on the large pocket tag are made using a Martha Steward stamp and punch set, They are 2 layers.
 The flowers are made using a Recollections mini flower punch and EK Success 5 petal flower punch. The leaves are hand cut.
 The pearls are by Recollections. The gems for the butterflies bodies are by Jolees Bling.The Ribbons are by offray.
The green butterflies and butterflies in the bag are cut using my Cricut and a Martha Steward punch.

The tags are hand cut and the corners at the top are done using a Fiskars corner punch. The large tag is a pocket tag. It has a pocket on each side. The other side is decorated too.
