Happy Birthday

Hello!  Today I'm playing along with the CAS-ual Fridays Boys of Summer challenge.

I did some alcohol ink smooshing with green and light blue alcohol inks.  I squirted these onto my craft mat and added a couple of drops of silver mixative and some blending solution.  It took a few passes to get the desired look, but I'm happy where it ended up.

I then stamped the butterfly focal point in brown archival ink.  I got the stamp set as part of an alcohol ink kit from Tim Holtz that I picked up at Michaels.

I added a 1/8 inch white mat around my inked piece and added that to my kraft card base.  Added a strip of Chocolate cardstock and a sentiment from the CTMH Stamps of Approval set, heat embossed in white.

Thanks for looking!
