Caardvarks & Speedy Cat Challenge

Hello everyone....
I have a couple cards for you that I made to coordinate with the "" and the " challenges for this week.
I am always in need of Birthday cards and it's fun to combine those with a challenge. It gives me inspiration and sometimes techniques that maybe I wouldn't think of on my own. I LOVE to try new stuff and hardly ever make the same card twice...although, if there is a layout that I particularly like, I'll use it again, but change things around.

For this card, I used a mustardy yellow Hero Arts stamp for the background. I used the 2nd generation technique so as not to get a clear image...just color.
Next I stamped the flower heads using two different SU colors of blue. I then embossed the flowers with clear glitter. I cut out a double of the flower images and covered the flowers so that the grass stamp would not go through the flowers, but they would remain on top. I HATE doing's so time consuming!!!
Anyway, next I stamped the blades of grass in a moss green.
The butterflies are gold Dazzles over matching blue CS.

Hero Arts background: Misty Swirl
Flowers: Stampin' Up  (don't know the set name)
Blades of Grass: Stampin' Up

So there you have was fun. I really like the colors. Seems summery, and I really, really, REALLY like summer!!!
