Birthday Butterflies

This week the challenge at Tuesday Throwdown is pearls. As you see, the flourish is made completely with pearls. I really enjoyed making this card. I have been viewing the class by Jennifer McGuire at Inspiration Showcase. It's a fabulous class. Each day she shows several techniques and gives examples using the techniques. My background is a result of yesterday and today's class. The technique is called distress ink watercolor. To create the background I used victorian velvet for the base and wild honey to stamp. I used the butterfly background stamp from Chapel Road Artstamps. The flower is from My Mind's Eye, the sentiment is a gold outline sticker, and the butterflies were cut from Cheery Lynn dies.
