You are Special!

I have a "You are special!" card today.
I started with this card for participating in Kavitha's inspirational challenge. But as I continued, I figured that the colors I am using are apt for the "Dhin Chak dhin" challenge at ICR. So this card will go to both the challenges.

I got inspiration from Tejal's this card. I simply love her cards especially the CAS ones.
Thank you Tejal for this wonderful inspiration!
And here's my card-

And here's a closer view at the "Special butterfly".

The black butterflies are stamped on parchment paper using black creativ ink and then clear embossed. The silver butterfly is stamped using creative glue pad and then embossed with silver embossing powder from Ranger. Yellow paper has tiny stars embossed and is form making memories.
Finally I am using things from my stash :). The dark blue pp with golden dot is from Paper Mania. Cardstock is local and flowers are quilled :)

I am so so thrilled that you were inspired by my card..Thank you for that honor..and what a lovely card..this is fantastic...love the clear embossed butterflies and the silver too!
How did you color them?

Priyadarshini Deshpande said...

@Tejal : Clear embossed ones are coloured using normal sketch pens on back side whereas silver ones are coloured on front. Earlier I coloured both on backside only..but the colours looked very light and didn't go well with silver embossing.
