Not what I had in mind

Hi everyone!
What the title of this post means, is that lately I have been doing a lot of pink and purple cards, and because of it I have 3 cards waiting to be shared in those colors. And that was going to be my post for today, but I got into my craft room today with an idea in my head, and started playing around. What came out of it, wasn't what I had in mind, but I loved it. So I decided to post this card today, and leave the other 3 for another day.

Lots of Hero Arts goodies on this one. The stamp I used for the background(?) is the Heart Flourish, that I stamped with Pumice Stone and Black Soot distress inks. The butterflies and the "Birthday" are HA designs for the silhouette that I inked the same way as the background. Then I stamped Old Writing (from HA too) over them with Black Soot ink.

I used chipboard letters for the "HAPPY" that I embossed with black embossing powder.
I wanted the butterflies to have dimension, so I put glue just on the body and raised the wings with a bit of dimensional tape. Love the effect.
Hope you liked it and I will be back tomorrow with a purple card, ha ha.
Thanks for stopping by!!
