#100 Celebrations

The  Butterfly Challenge is marking it's #100th challenge today and has extra special prizes to be won in celebration of the event. The challenge will also be running for 4 weeks so plenty of time for you to enter your cards.
#100 Spin The Butterfly wheel with the Letter H.

Here is my inspiration for you .

1st card uses the colour Hot Pink, Heat Embossing and Butterflies.
The stamp set is by Studio Light.
I have several of their stamps now and they really are a delight to use. They stamp out perfectly. I used this one in my Misti tool as I was heat embossing the image after having stamped it out first. I used Silver embossing powder on the flower head ,stem and leaves. The markings on the butterflies I thought to be too intricate so I used a silver gel pen to enhance after having coloured using a blue Promarker. The flower has been coloured in using my Graph'it markers. The wording  has become a firm favourite with me and is a digi  by Digi Stamp Boutique  'Birthday Mr Bear' sentiment. I like that I can print it out in various sizes to fit the card I am making. I mounted the finished coloured image onto pale green card stock and then adhered to a white card base. The sentiment was mounted onto green then white card and finally onto the green card stock below the image. I love how this card turned out.

 2nd card uses the colour Harvest Gold, Hexagons and Butterflies.

The stamp set is by Studio Light.
I have coloured in using my Graph'it markers. Mounted the finished image onto white leather cardstock already die cut from a previous card and then adhered to the same cardstock made into the card base.The sentiment is a gold sticker from my stash which I have mounted onto 3 consecutive hexagon die cuts and then raised up on 3D pads.  The die is by Xcut.

3rd card uses the colour Hunters Green, Hearts and Butterflies.
The card base is made from silver satin cardstock to which I have mounted a sheet of  green vellum held in place by the silver corner stickers. The hearts and butterflies are from my stash and a part of several different ones that my lovely blogging pal Di gave to me a long time ago now and I am slowly/reluctantly using up on my cards.  The sentiment/numbers are  silver stickers from my stash.

I finished off the inside of the card with two additional panel's and added more hearts to embellish. 

Hope you will come and play along in the celebrations. The challenge closes on June 5th. I will be posting more cards for your inspiration over the next few weeks.
