Belated Birthday

For my Whimsy card today I used the super cute stamp Butterfly, Snail, Toadstool from the KHB collection. Loved coloring up this cutie! I had colored it with copics a few days go, but wasn't 100% happy with how the large mushroom turned out. And since I do love coloring so much and had extra free time, I decided to get out my Faber Castell Polychromos pencils and do some more coloring :-)

Aren't these critters adorable!! I thought they'd make a great belated birthday card :-)
Anyway, the image has been stamped onto Brisol Vellum card stock. I used baby oil for blending. Baby oil in place of mineral spirits work great with these pencils, as they contain oil pigments. 
The designer paper is from my stash, it's also from Whimsy, but no longer available. Sentiment is from the set Simple Everyday Greetings from a previous release. 
This is a flat card with no added embellishments or glitter. Loving how it turned out! I can't even remember when the last card I made didn't have some sort of twine, ribbon or glitter on it.

Above is a picture of the inside.
 I used a sentiment from the set Birthday Greetings and stamped a couple butterflies. 


Above is a closeup view of the cute image.
