Birthday Girl!

Hi all!  Hope you are having a great day!  Just in with a quick one I came up with while I was staring at the ceiling last night!  I always build my cards in my head first!  It saves so much time and then I can sit down during "nap time" and create a bunch of cards!  BOY do I love nap time!  ;)


Lovin' this Butterfly set....


Thanks for looking today!  Make it a good one!

Love the contrasts here! The dots in the background/butterfly with the dashes in the ribbon/mat. That is so striking. The colors are too! The black against the white with the shading on the butterfly! Very pretty!

I LOVE this card! I really liked seeing the polka dots along the edge and then on the butterfly. Then there are the white stitches on the ribbon and then on the orange cardstock - I love how it all comes together!
