Hello, it's Rubeena here today with my last card as Butterfly Reflections Ink's Design Team member. I've thoroughly enjoyed being on the team, getting to know the other members and Vanessa, and enjoying all the other perks. ;-) Soon the new team will be announced, and I hope you'll all give them a warm welcome.

Today's card was really fun and easy to make. The front panel was created with the ink smooshing technique using a thin sheet of plastic. I used a few blue Distress Inks: Chipped Sapphire, Mermaid Lagoon, Salty Ocean, and Blueprint Sketch. I dried in between colors with my heat tool and then finished the look with sprays of white pigment ink, gold and shimmer sprays. The new WPlus9 Starry Background Die is AMAZING because it not only cuts out stars but also embosses some. It's smaller than size A2 so I used it on the colored piece towards the upper left area. I removed all the little stars and added the panel to a white card base with foam tape.

The giraffe from Altenew's new Baby Zoo was stamped with black pigment ink on white cardstock and then the second layer was stamped with VersaMark and heat set in gold. I fussy cut it and added it at the bottom of the card. The sentiment was stamped on white cardstock with VersaMark and heat set in gold, too. I fussy cut it and added it next to the giraffe with some gold thread behind it. I added strips of some cute gold foil washi tape underneath it.

I hope you've enjoyed all the cards I've shared with you. You can find me at A Rare Ruby Crafts for other projects. Have a great week.
