Inked up my PTI Rosie Posie daises, which I really like and need to use more often 💓 I stamped it in three different colors on a panel of Stamper's Select White cardstock onto a panel of sage green then mounted it all onto a turquoise card base. 

The sparkly happy birthday die seems to be enough (?) but I may add bling to the flower centers or some Wink of Stella may do the trick 😉

PTI:  Cover Plate:  Butterflies

I ink-blended a panel of White cardstock with 2 shades of pink and 1 pastel violet inks before die cutting the Butterflies.

I didn't notice the glue marks (touched with my inky fingers) until after I added the sequins.  I think I can save my creation by masking the butterflies and adding some ink splatters~the colorful glue smudges are in too many spots to add more sequins. 

This is a good opportunity to Cover Up a mishap on the next "The Great Cover Up" Challenge!   LOL
