Happy Birthday Butterfly Tag

Hello, friends!  I'm here today to share a clean and simple card I made for several challenges:

1) Addicted to Stamps and More! Challenge #304: CAS -- I kept my card clean and simple by maintaining lots of white space and minimal embellishments. My favorite type of card!

2) CAS on Friday: Challenge #139 - Butterflies -- I let my die cut butterfly take center stage on this clean and simple card!

3) Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Distress It -- I used Tim Holtz distress ink for the blue background of my butterfly.  (I'll also be linking this to the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge #103 where the theme this week is birthdays!)

I started my card by die cutting a stitched tag and embossing it with a birthday embossing folder.  Next, I die cut the solid butterfly shape, then added blue distress ink to the main card base behind the opening. Then I attached the tag to the card base and insterted the detailed butterfly die cut on top, finishing it off with a matching enamle dot.  I did not stamp a sentiment on the outside because the dry embossed tag is clearly for a birthday!

Supplies Used:
Dies: MFT (Pierced Traditional Tag STAX), Simon Says Stamp (Leanna, Chrissy)
Inks: Tim Holtz distress ink (Tumbled Glass)
Other: embossing folder (Lifestyle Crafts "Happy Birthday"), enamel dots

Thank you for stopping by, I do appreciate your visits!
Take care,
