Butterfly Birthday


I found this piece of pretty cardstock in my stash that looks like it was water colored, so I designed this card around the colors. I used 2 MB butterfly dies; the Darice, and Vivienne to make the butterfly. The "birthday" word die cut is by SNSS, while the "happy" die cut is from SSS. I used turquoise and Melon Mambo card stock, along with some matching sequins.

I'm sharing this with the following challenges:

Cards in Envy "wings" challenge - use anything with wings on your card and make it flat enough to mail in an envelope without extra postage.

The Butterfly Challenge #59 - "P is for Punches and/or Pink." I went with the pink color of Melon Mambo.

Thanks for checking in and I wish you a fabulous day!
