Embossed birthday

Hi everyone,

We have been enjoying a pretty hot summer here, so it's been a little hard to hang out in my small craft room without air conditioning, but I took a class a few weeks ago which I thought would make a perfect birthday card for some friends and family.  I also wanted to practice the technique.  This is a double embossed card I learned from Jessie Hurley.  The embossing folder of the butterflies is a Darice folder and the dots, I believe, is a Cuttlebug.  I used Memento ink to color the background and butterflies.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
The Friday Mashup! - Challenge #222
Seize the birthday - Anything that flies
Fussy and Fancy Friday - Challenge #146 Birthdays
Simply Create Too - Challenge #92 Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
