Birthday hugs for Gina

Good afternoon!

Last week in GinaK's forum on SCS, Joanne weekly challenge was to make a birthday card for Gina using her stamps. This is the card I made. I will be putting it in the mail today - I wish I could have been able to get it to Gina before her birthday.
The stamp set I chose for the card is Botanical Dreams. The flowers were stamped in memento tuxedo black on 80 lb pure luxury paper and colored with Copics. I added Stardust sticklers to the center of the opened flowers.
The butterflies are from Hero Arts Care Frames. They are stamped with Versafine onyx black ink on vellum and embossed with clear ep. I colored the backside of the vellum butterflies with copics and covered the front side of the vellum with versamark and embossed with iridescent ice ep to make them sparkle. After cutting them out I adhered them to the cs with glue dots.
The sentiment is from GinaK's Tag Lines and was cut out with the double ended labels.
The brown cs is from Bazzill and the dp is Basic Greys Mellow. I used my sewing machine to stitch around the card.
To finish the card, I added fancy photo corners, SU's apricot ribbon and brown half back pearls.

Enjoy the rest of you day and thanks for stopping by!

Wow these cards you make are amazing are you selling them? If so where could a person buy them. I would rather spend the $5.00 on this then the ones that you get at the drug store. Simply AMAZING!!!
