I just noticed a half finished blog post from last week. Looks like I've missed several challenges where it was supposed to participate. Card making is fun, I can even do the photos but uploading it to blog is really difficult every time... Oh well... Here it is, my pink and black birthday card.

Black card-stock is something I don't use much. And probably don't use any time soon. I had great planes with it. I wanted to make a colorful embossed butterfly with two embossing powders. Everything was perfect until I heated it - pink disappeared on black. That was sad. So I made a die-cut butterfly instead. And on top of it I put acetate butterfly. Acetate is colored with Promarker.
Flowers on half circles are embossed with clear EP and after that I inked the paper with pink ink. Flowers on main panel are stamped with distress ink and after that heat embossed with clear EP.

Inside of the card has a pocket. All sentiments are computer generated.

Materials used:
Stamps: Sizzix Framelits w stamps - Butterflies #3

Papers: Pink designer paper, white and black papers from my stash.
Coloring: Promarkers

Inks: Versamark embossing ink; Memento - Angel Pink, Tuxedo Black; TH Distress ink - Milled Lavender
Dies: Spellbinders - Standard Circles Larges, Classic Scalloped Circles Large; Sizzix Framelits - Butterflies #3
Embellishments: SweetStamps - Clear emossing powder White FlowerSoft; Acetate and ribbon are from my stash; Nerchau 3D Glitter Liner
