Birthday Wishes

While I do love shine, glitter, and glitz, lately I've been on a quest for non-shiny embossing powder.  I love the added options you get with the more subtle look of a non-shiny embossed finish, especially with vintage and distressed looks.  The WOW company has a fabulous Clear Matte Dull that works beautifully and I've been writing them in hopes they'll consider adding White, Black, Kraft, and Cream matte finishes to their line of fabulous powders.  In the meanwhile, I've discovered Ranger's Antiquities Weathered White . . .

 The butterflies were done with this powder and I love the loose and lacy look they have.  I'm also super-pleased with the way the strips along the right and left sides turned out!  They were trimmings from cutting down the background layer and I hated to waste them.  I think the slightly lighter coloration is what makes this look work . . .
