black cardstock for the overlay. With the mask on top of white paper I applied  Iridescent Radiant Gels Dimensional Paints by ColourArte inside the butterflies (Emperor’s Gold & Olive Vine).  After drying I colored the background with Color Burst Liquid Metals by Ken Oliver called Metalic Turquois mixed  with water.  Next I glued the black Butterflies cutout on top.

For the sentiment I stamped and heat embossed on vellum the Happy Birthday from the Sprigs stampset by Penny Black.

P.S. I almost forgot, I made the iridescent frame for the focal point by sponging Hickory Smoke & Weathered Wood  Tim Holtz Distress Ink by Ranger and then smeared African Jade Iridescent Radiant Gels Dimensional Paints by ColourArte.
