Card for grandmother

Happy Saturday everyone.  I hope the weather hasn't been too bad for you all today.  Last night it was torrential rain here but thankfully it's dried up today.  At least no-one had to water their plants here this morning. 

I'm back to share a card I made for my boys to give to their grandmother for her birthday (back in April).  I'm playing catch up so expect to see lots of cards soon.

I ink blended my background with distress oxide inks and then used a gorgeous Simon Says Stamp 'outline floral frame' die which I cut from white card stock and placed over the top.  I added water droplets to the ink blended panel as I really like the effect.  I used Clearly Besotted 'butterfly duo die collection' dies (which sadly no longer appear to be available) and die cut the top layer with white card stock and the bottom layer with more of the ink blended card and added them with Nuvo deluxe glue to my background.  The sentiment is also Clearly Besotted Stamps from the 'happy birthday all' stamp set (which again I sadly can't find on the website).  I was really happy with this card and will definitely make more in different colours when I get a chance. 

I'm going to add this card into the simonsayschallenge over on Instagram for their June 'ink blending' challenge.

Thanks for stopping by.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend and take care.
