So Happy For You!!

Hi there! Another card to share tonight!  We are adding texture to our one layer cards in the class I'm taking...C & S one layer cards 3!  
I had this done earlier but had to wait to post it...did some clothes shopping with the kids! Seems they went through yet another growth spurt!!
Anyway.... I started with a white panel that was 4 x 5 1/4 and I stamped the butterfly from the Hero Arts Butterfly and Flower set using white embossing powder). I used my Spectrum noir markers ( PP1, BT2, TB1, colorless blender) to color. Then decided it wasn't the look I wanted so I re embossed using gold powder. I die cut the butterfly to create a mask and used a post it note for the sentiment.  The sentiment was gold embossed using the MFT Celebrate stamp set. I used Heidi Swapp's Gold and mint spray and used a paint brush to just just flick onto the card. Then I used the SSS falling snow stencil and white embossing paste to add a confetti look. When I went to adhere it to the card base I wasn't happy with it so I took some TH tumbled glass distress ink around the edges and a thin strip of gold glitter tape to the top! There...I was happy with how that looked! 
So after all's the card!

An up close shot of the butterfly and the splatter! 
The inspiration for this card came from Debby Hughes (the instructor in class)! 
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great night!
