Butterfly Basics Birthday Card

As I mentioned the other day, I needed some birthday cards and decided to use this very pretty stamp set from SU.  I like to visit Brenda Quintana's blog.  She does a facebook live and a CASE-ing Tuesday from the SU Catalog.  I thought this card was so pretty and would be perfect for my daughter's birthday coming up.  Check out this VIDEO for all the details.

I can imagine this card done in many different colors, but I knew she would like the Sugarplum CS.  For the fold over flaps, I ended up using up some DSP scraps, which is always a good thing.  I also used my Black ink for the sentiments as I didn't have the green she used, which I thought made the images stand out better.

I had only used the butterfly before in this stamp set, so it was nice to use the rest of the stamps.

This card could be used for other occasions as well.  I was really pleased how the cards turned out - so soft and pretty.

Our Memorial Day was rained out but it was kinda of nice to just relax.  I have to go back to the foot Dr. this week, so hope to get rid of this boot I have been dragging around.  I'm sure then there will be PT on the horizon.  UGH!!  Have a great week!

Thanks for stopping by,

That's such a pretty card and so clever the way it's made! We're on and off with our sunshine. It's hard to make plans.
