Birthday Butterfly card

Another one of my make and take cards. For this one, I scored the background piece with even lines and then used Dusty concord distress ink and Broken china distress ink with a blender tool. I then stamped the 'grasses' stamp in Black soot distress ink along the bottom. I stuck down some white grosgrain ribbon along the bottom of the background. On a separate piece of card, I rubbed the blender with the same colours. I then stamped the script stamp with black over it. Out of this card, I punched 3 butterflies and inked the edges in Black soot. I mounted them onto the ribbon and added a rhinestone. I stamped the Happy birthday, cut it out and inked the edges with dusty concord. The Happy Birthday was then mounted on the background piece and the piece was then stuck down onto a base white card.
These Make and take ideas are budget ones , using very little material, and so costing only a small amount for those of you on a budget.
