Apothecary Art Birthday

Today, I'm avoiding the sun, and hiding in the shade indoors to do some crafting, and I made this card for my friends birthday.

I will also be submitting it to these challenges :

The sketch is from 


The colours came from Color Throwdown

and from the photo inspiration at 

and  lastly, Seize the Birthday have the extra topping of 

Card - Lucky Limeade, Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Silver card and base FMS
Stamps - Apothecary Art, and Papillon Potpourri
Inks - Lucky Limeade, Melon Mambo, Black Archival, and Versamark
Tools - Big Shot, Mosaic Madness EF, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Aqua Painter, and Heat Gun
Extras - Silver EP, and 3D Pads

The Apothecary Art label was coloured with my Aqua Painter, and shaded with SU Markers, before being laid on silver card. The Butterfly was coloured the same way, with the wing edges and body touched with Versamark and heated silver EP. The sentiment was pieced together from the original stamp of "Happiest Birthday" using the Stamp-a-ma-jig.

I'm still recovering from my nightmare of loosing my all my comments, and I will make sure I don't have too many email pages open at the same time in the future!!

I hope you all have a good week, whatever you are doing.
