Gladiolas are the flowers for the month of August.  I chose this stamp set from Clear Dollar Stamps to create a birthday card for someone celebrating their birthday this month. The image is stamped on the amazing Laser Silver Lustre paper from the Paper Temptress . I also used The Paper Temptress super textured Ruche paper -  the blue, the yellow and the green. This paper always adds awesome texture.

The image is colored with Copics and the shimmery laser lines still show through the coloring.  The butterfly is cut using Cricut Home Accents cartridge, cutting the image from the laser paper and coloring with Copics.  The body of the butterfly was done using the Imaginisce iRock tool and the metallic glam rocks.  Great fun using this super simple tool!
