Butterfly Birthday and a Sweet Baby card

I've been using purple lately which is not a color I use very often but for some reason have been drawn to it lately. The Birthday Wishes uses an Inkadinkado set, Patterned Bugs. I heat embossed the image in white then dry embossed with Swiss Dots on top. A simple card but I think it came out pretty...I like the stitching detail.

This card was made entirely of scraps that I've had for quite some time and just wanted to use up. I actually sewed the button onto the folded point of the flower so it would stay put. Some piercing gave it some pretty detail. Otherwise it's pretty self-explanatory. I hope you have a great day! And keep those applications coming...I've gotten several and there are so many talented people out there!

Stamps: Inkadinkado, Patterned Bugs, PTI, Birthday Basics, Bitty Blessings
Tools: Paper Piercer, MS punches, sewing, Cricut for labels, Cuttlebug, Swiss Dots
Other: White Crochet Flower, Paper Blooms store, buttons, silk flower, sheer polka dot ribbon
