Wednesday Butterfly Birthday Card

Hello my dear blogging friends. I hope you are having a wonderful week, lots of fresh air and sunshine, and finding time to use your creative talents.
 Today I have for you a card that I have made after combining four very fun challenges together. I apologies for the poor picture quality, but at least it shows you the pretty little card I made.
I do admit photography is NOT one of my talents!
So, starting with the challenge from tuesdaythrowdown which is to make your own background, I have used my happy birthday embossing folder with white paper to make the background for this birthday themed card. Over at simplylessismoore they have two cards for inspiration, and I have chosen to use the birthday theme, and the red heart on this card. On the pinspirationalchallenges the photo inspiration is a picture of beautiful butterflies which you can see I have put three on my card as embellishments to add interest. These butterflies were purchased at our local dollar store which is the fourth challenge from shoppingourstash. I always love to be given a challenge to use what I already have, and at Shopping our Stash, the challenges are always about pulling out something from your pile of stash.
Thank you so much for looking and for stopping by today. It means so much to me that you have found your way to my little space here in blogland. Your comments are always welcomed and very appreciated.


  1. Beatiful classic colour combo - love the black and white butterflies. They look fantastic perched on the embossed background and the red heart is the perfect finishing touch.
