CAS Mix-up - Happy Birthday

Hello Everyone,
Today, I'm playing in the CAS Mix-up Card Challenge ... 1st Birthday Celebration. Cards are to includes stamping, smooshing plus choice. My card includes smooshing with alcohol inks (on photo paper), stamping/embossing on vellum, die-cut, use of gems. The background was created using green and blue shades and the blending solution of Copic re-inkers. A die-cut butterfly and blue rhinestones that match the blue in the panel were added.

This was my first try smooshing with alcohol inks ... the colors are so rich.

Hope you're having a great day.  Thank you for visiting and commenting ... always appreciate your feedback.
