Bloggers Challenge happy Birthday + I won more candy!!!

I finally had time to create today- Yeah!  I am such in a floral mood lately- and I also got a chance to play with some new paints made by Creative Inspirations.

Today is our Bloggers Challenge "Mom's" Birthday celebration- Happy Birthday Lisa! It is also a Birthday at Gingersnap, where they asked for Frosting on your card- I frosted my butterflies with a 2nd layer and CI paints-link below.  I used a new Sketch challenge put out by Pamela at FCD- love the way it worked out!  I stamped the butterfly 6 times and cut out three of them, attached just the center section so they are dimensional. The BG is called Brayered Brilliance from the latest Technique Junkies newsletter- all in SU greens and Brilliance Gold inks.  Stamps are Firecracker Designs by Pamela  (Sitting Pretty, Butter/Dragon Fly, and the ATC set 2009) and SU sentiment.
This card also qualifies for a few challenges:  Clear Dollar Stamps- Green , and Stamp Something-Green and Cream, Tanda Teaser-Simply Spring and Charisma-Beautiful Butterflies

  I used a new paint by Creative Inspirations- they are wonderfully shimmery- I painted them on, but you can use them in many ways- dabbed on, add to water in a mister and mist it on- use like Radiant Pearls or any Mica product to get shimmer on your card. I will be storing them in small clam shell boxes where I can very easily visualize the colors.
  I also wanted to mention a HUGE THANKS to Becca for her recent Blog Candy that I won!  

  I have been very blessed with winnings lately- I keep hearing-"go buy a lottery ticket"!!!  Last week, I also posted cards from all of my blogging sisters, plus one I sent to Joanne, and I won the prize at Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential- 4 digital images from In Style Stamps.  Thanks to Saturday Spotlight and In Style stamps- I have not picked my images yet.
 Thanks for stopping by!  You can view more Bloggers Challenge cards by clicking on the icon on my sidebar.
