Butterfly Birthday

I was so grateful for the excuse to make a card this week.  I'm in report card crunch and can't think straight any more.  I can't wait until I get them done and can have some significant crafting time to myself.

This week's challenge on MFP's Speedy Fox and Friend's challenge is to make a birthday card with butterflies.  I had fun playing with Splitcoaststampers Card Sketch challenge #533.  The images are from Oriental Joy and Lots of Words and the butterflies were stamped twice to allow the wings to fold up a bit for some dimension.  The sentiment is from Huge Blooms.  The ribbon was purchased when I was planning cards for my sister's wedding shower but it didn't make the final cut.  I love how it looks like part of a lattice fence here.

Challenges This Card Meets:


  1. Lovely card! Your butterflies are beautiful!

  2. Love that stamp the butterflies are perfect there......Lis

  3. Beautiful card; love the lattice border.

  4. A very beautiful card. I love how you added the butterflies with this image.
