Birthday Butterfly -- for Lavinia World Challenges

It's time for challenge #10 at Lavinia World Challenges!  These 2 weeks go so fast, but I don't lose my enthusiasm for these incredible Lavinia stamps and papers found in the Lavinia World Store

First, a few guidelines: Challenges are Anything Goes, as long as you use an acrylic or rubber stamp.  Lavinia Stamps are not a requirement, however, we love to see them! You can win a prize of a gift certificate to the Lavinia World store, based in the US. There are also some Honorable Mention entries for each challenge. 

I wanted to make a birthday card, with an Autumn color scheme.  Here's what I created for today's challenge:

I used the Lavinia Stamps, Zen Butterfly on this card.  I stamped it using Versafine Clair ink in Paradise, then heat set it using clear embossing powder.  I repeated this 3 times, making it so it looked like there were Zen Butterflies flying off the paper.  After I got the stamping and embossing done, I got busy inking.  I used a variety of Tim Holtz Distress inks to achieve this effect. 

A piece of designer paper, a "Happy Birthday" die, a card base, and the card was complete.

Join us this next 2 weeks at the Lavinia World Challenges.  Uses a Lavinia Stamp and you'll double your chances of winning the Designer's Choice Award, and the $15 gift certificate!

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
D.L. Art -- September Linky Party
Word Art Wednesday -- ATG
Outlawz Festive Friday -- Birthday
Digichoosday -- ATG
Outlawz Monday Greetings -- Distress Inks or Edges (inks, in this case)
