Birthday Butterfly

Good morning! Yay it's Friday! 
I have the pleasure of my little man's company this weekend, and I can't wait! :)

I have a card for you today, using an stamp I haven't used for a while...

Here is the beautiful Swallowtail stamp and I have coloured it with Island Indigo ink; pen and inkpad with blender pen. 

I used the fab new Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder to give the illusion of flight and movement, enhanced by the butterfly not being flush on the card.

I will be honest, I'm not overly thrilled with this card...I think the butterfly could have done with more colour...what do you think?

Stamps - Swallowtail, Simply Sketched
Ink - Basic Black, Island Indigo
Designer Series Paper - In Colour 2012/14 (ret)
Ribbon - Smoky Slate Chevron
Embossing - Stylish Stripes

Have you visited my new shop yet for all your Stampin' Up! goodies? What do you think? If you haven't, please do pop on over and give me your opinion...I'd love to know what you think!
