(2013 c3) Birthday card

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAFor my card today I used stamps from Gina K Designs:the butterfly is from one of my old stampsets Hope Grows by Theresa Momber, and the Birthday sentiment is from my newest stampset from GinaK Designes called Many Wishes by Gina K (my first time to use this new stampset).

For the largest circle I cut out vellum with  Spellbinders Lacy Circles dies. and then distressed with Tim Holtz Distress ink. The top circle is actually 1 piece of paper that I spritzed with water and then embossed several different sized Lacy Circles dies with the brown embossing mat on my Big Kick, then I cut it out with the largest die. Then I distressed with Tim Holtz Distress inks, making it look like there are several layers.
