Butterfly Birthday Easel Card - Copic Coloring and Cricut Flower Shoppe

Happy Monday!  Here is another easel card I made this weekend.  I stamped the butterfly with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic markers.  Then I used this really cool double sided tape I got at the Scrapbook Expo in Columbus this past March and added glitter over the whole image.  The tape works amazingly well, the glitter doesn't even come off on your fingers if you rub over it.  After I glittered it I re-colored it a bit to make the colors a bit more vibrant.  I used Marvy punches for all of the scalloped circles.  The flowers were all made using the Cricut Flower Shoppe cartridge - I am very pleased with how small I was able to cut these out and still have them look great.  The smallest ones were cut at 1 1/4" and they cut perfectly.  The green patterned paper is from the DCWV Lemon Flower stack and the pink is Core'dinations cardstock embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder and sanded.  My 5 year old daughter enjoyed helping with the sanding!  The Happy Birthday on the front is a Studio G stamp I have had forever.  The sentiment on the bottom is computer generated.
