In honor of Heidi's Birthday we are showcasing our very own Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Brand this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used.

Due to products shipping and various reasons, I will not be taking part of this birthday blog hop (boo!). Please check out all the details in Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where all the fun is happening right now....

For my project, I used Butterfly Friends, Folded Banners Craft Die and Handwritten Sentiments.
These are all Simon Exclusive! I am loving the quality and designs and I would highly recommend them if you have not have any SSS products yet. This is the birthday card that I mailed to Heidi...
happy birthday (2)  
About this card: I did some simple stamping and layered my butterfly images to a pleasing way. I clear-embossed the coral red butterfly (it was stamped in Pale Tomato by Hero Arts). I think the colors definitely pops more and the clear embossing protects the stamped image from getting discolored or smeared...I think that was a good move :) 

As always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!

Last but certainly not the least, Happy birthday, Heidi! You are a bright, bright light in the crafting industry. I am so thrilled to play a little part in Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
