Birthday card for a friend.

I made a little trip to One Crazy Stamper in Bolton yesterday to pick up my pre-orders.  One of the items I had pre-ordered is a 6 x 6 paper pack of some gorgeous papers - Butterfly Garden by Wild Rose Studios.  The papers in this pack are drop dead gorgeous!  I love flowers and butterflies and this paper pack has plenty of both!  The paper pack is even prettier and some of the papers are more vibrant than the picture shows.

Here is the card I made using those gorgeous papers:

Here is the inside of the card:
Card base is ivory card stock.  The pink and green card stock are both from Bazzill.  I used Memory Box dies - Pippi Butterfly which I embellished with glitter and tiny cream coloured flat back pearls sitting on top of the Darla Butterfly angel wings.  The leaves of the flower was made using a Martha Stewart leaf punch which was scored using an embossing tool to make the leaves more life like.  The flower die is from My Favourite Things - Layered Rose which was also scored using an embossing tool and embellished with a cream flat back pearl.  The pink flower and butterfly adds a nice pop of colour to this card. I punched the 2 butterflies inside the card with a Creative Memories punch which was embellished with glitter and tiny cream flat back pearls.  The sentiment is from Penny Black and was stamped using Versa Color Winter Green onto a My Favourite Things Polka Dot Greetings Dienamics.  I also have the stamp set that co-ordinates with this die but chose the sentiment from Penny Black instead as it fits well onto the die.  The papers I chose are muted but some of the papers in this paper pack are quite vibrant.  I really love this card and I'm sure that my friend will love it too!

I am entering this card into the Seize the Birthday Challenge as well as One Crazy Stamper's August challenge which is to make a Birthday card.

Thanks for stopping by!

I absolutely agree with you. Those papers are gorgeous and so is your card. I love the fact that you decorated the inside as well. Something I don't take the time to do but should. It adds so much more. Hope you are well! Best, Curt

I keep meaning to come and see you, Anna, when I see you play in a lot of the same challenges. I love your STB card; it pops in the gallery with those pretty papers! The inside of your card looks better than the outsides of mine!!

Anyway, I also just saw you on Lesley's MIL's page and I stopped to come and introduce myself and follow you finally! Your card art is wonderful! Darnell
