Fabulous Birthday

It's been a bit hectic here of late with things going wrong one after the other so not been on line much. I now have a spanking new Ipad, hopefully  internet problems are sorted. Just got to get used to using the new features as the one that died on me was 7yrs old and old hat technology. So what else could possibly go wrong! I didn't have long to wait. I got hacked not once but twice in the same day and the ensuing mayhem is still being sorted out.I had to cancel the card( which fortunately I was in time to stop being used) that was associated with the hacked accounts. Right now I am not a happy bunny.
Time again for a new challenge over on the Butterfly challenge. The new theme is
so you can use 
Butterfly/Dark Salmon/ Denim Blue/Dirt/Digi Image/Die Cut/Dimension

Here is my inspiration for you.
I decided to make an easel card and use Dark Salmon/ Dimension with my butterfly.
The stamp used is by Studio Light JBS05 and coloured using my Graph'it markers and a gold gel pen. I stamped the middle section of the flower out twice more and then fussy cut round. Each flower has been popped up with 3D tape to give the dimension. The butterfly is a wooden painted button and sits  raised on the image. The sentiment is by Digi stamp Boutique from Birthday Mr Bear so unintentionally I have also used the digi image element of the wheel. This is also raised up on 3D tape to give the ledge for the easel to stand up.
 Sideways view showing the  dimension on the button and flower head.
Again from the otherside of the card. 
Challenge runs for 2weeks and I hope you will come and spin the wheel.

This is beautiful and I love the soft salmon color. You rarely see that color and it is one of my favorites. What a terrible time you have had from hacking. It is starting to show up everywhere.

Beautiful easel card! Great dimension on the flower, and beautiful coloring with your markers! The layers really make the flower pop out! Love the butterfly button, too!
Congrats for the spotlight at UnstampaBelles challenge :)

Beautiful card, gorgeous colours and images, Kate x

Kathleen said...

Oh my goodness, poor you, hope things get sorted pdq. Good luck with the new technology.
Well you could have knocked me down with a Promarker, as I only stamped and coloured this image yesterday, obviously I haven't added a butterfly but I do like the way you have done the main flower head, will take note of this for next time.
Love the large sentiment and the great style of card.

So sorry to hear you've had all those woes, so stressful and time consuming, you did well to make such a beautiful card. Not sure what the "Dirt" means in the design options....... 😀 Hugs xxx

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear about your computer and hacking troubles and hope it's all sorted out soon. I've had my credit card hacked twice and it was such an ordeal as I pay most of my bills automatically through my cards, ugh. Your beautiful floral card is very impressive however, and I hope to join in the butterfly challenge this time around.

KandA said...

Ooh what a gorgeous card with that super layered flower. I do hope you've managed to get things sorted with the ipad and your hacked account and hope you don't pull your hair out completely. Just tell them that you have a lot of followers om your blog and you'll be giving them VERY bad reviews and maybe they'll be a bit more helpful. I tried that once with a company and they changed their attitude straight away xx

What a beautiful card! And I've never thought to make an easel card with the fold going backover. That flower is fabulous as well - wonder colours too.

Sending extra big hugs! Hackers need to be strung up for sure.

You poor thing, I hope you've sorted out all your 'hacking' problems and thank goodness they didn't get a chance to go crazy with your credit card!!! Love the shape of your card, have never tried this type of folding card before. Love how it sits up on its own. The apricot colour is so pretty and your flowers are coloured beautifully. I'm so glad you joined us at The Flower Challenge!!
