Stampin' Up! Stitched All Around Birthday Card for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to our weekly blog hop. Today we have a sketch challenge and I brought out my Stitched All Around stamp set, Stitched Labels Framelits dies and my Springtime Impressions dies to make my card. Here is the sketch...

and here is my card...

Don't you just love this shade of blue? It's new in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and it's called Seaside Spray. The ribbon is new as well and it comes in the 2019-2021 In Colors.

I'd like to enter this card in the challenge at The House that Stamps Built - DCCJ519 - Things With Wings.

I began by embossing the front of my card base with the Country Floral 3D folder.

The two pieces of ribbon are adhered with Tear and Tape. I cut the pretty mat from the Stitched Labels out of Whisper White card stock and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue.

Next I cut the butterfly out of a piece of Seaside Spray and attached it with mini dimensionals. That die is from the Springtime Impressions dies. The Sahara Sand leaves are made with the Leaf Punch and adhered with liquid glue.

It doesn't show in the photo but I went over the butterfly and leaves with my clear Wink of Stella Glimmer Brush.

For the inside...

I used the Detailed Trio punch on the four corners and stamped the sentiment from Stitched All Around in Seaside Spray.
