Happy Birthday to You


Good morning, dear friends and Happy Victoria Day to all my fellow Canadians :)  The sun is finally shining so this will be a quick post so I can go detail my car (finally!!).  Today's card is for the current Embellish colour challenge with the extra requirement of butterflies.  I have several small butterfly punches, but chose my favourite Stampin' Up butterfly die :)  Dawn McV.'s Damask stamp set came to mind right away for some reason as did wrapped twine instead of ribbon!! (hard to believe, I know!)  Maybe it was to keep the focus on the butterfly :)  Have a lovely day :) 

What's in it?
Stamps: PTI damask design
Ink: SU kiwi kiss; versafine onyx; PTI tea dye duo
Paper: PTI kraft, black, cream, polka dot basics dp; Michaels dp
Accessories: SU butterfly die; dritz pins, twine, pearls, PTI button

Absolutely LOVE this card, Maureen!! Your butterfly is gorgeious and I love the button with twine and then pins for antena The twine is a fabulous touch too. Fabulously done!

You were correct in saying you saw your bird on a card. For whatever reason blogger posted instead of scheduling my card. Has happened to me before and for the life of me can't figure it out. You'll be able to see it tomorrow :D Thanks again for your wonderful little gift! I know want that punch even more LOL!

You're going to have to show us a picture of your car when you are done :D You multi-talented lady you. Enjoy the rest of your day!
