Butterfly Birthday Wishes

Hello and Happy Bermuda Day!  
It's a public holiday here and the (unofficial) first day of the year for Bermudians to go swimming.  It's super humid so Luis and I will be heading down to the dock later on to cool off.  In the meantime I have a card for the Paper Players CAS butterfly challenge.  I used some embossing paste with an Altenew stencil for the background along with an Altenew sentiment and Papertrey Ink butterflies.  Nice and quick to put together but the paste and popped up butterfly add lots of dimension and texture.
That's it for now.  Time to fire up the BBQ for some lunch.  Have a lovely day!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Strawberry Slush, Smokey Slate) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Sentiment from Birthday greetings) Altenew
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukeniko
Dies:  (Butterflies) Papertrey Ink
Stencil:  (Sketched Lines) Altenew
Embossing Paste:  Dreamweaver Stencils
Gems:  Recollections

I have never worked with paste before, Jen, but I really like the simple added effect it has beneath the butterfly on this card. I also like all the white space popped against the colorful butterfly. Thank you for joining us at The Paper Players this week! Crystal, DT

How many years has this butterfly die been out and I still wish I had it. I love it!

A middle-of-the week holiday is a fine idea. :) (Is it Queen Victoria-realated, as our long weekend holiday is?)
Love how your embossing paste pops against the grey cardstock. Pretty!
