Birthday Card for a Friend

After seeing the beautiful cards that Maria made for the Pinkalicious Blog Hop, I just had to try my hand at one myself.   At first I was having trouble getting the right colors for the butterfly until I googled an image of one and found many beautiful monarch butterflies.  So that gave me the push I needed.

Thanks to Maria for her inspiration.  You can find her at
And thanks also to Georgiana at who inspired me to dress up my envelope with scraps.  Such terrific ideas!  TFL!

Forgot to include that the butterfly was cut from the Sentimentals cartridge (don't you just love the intricacy?!) at 4-1/2" fit to length because the wing span is so wide, when I first tried to cut it, the darn thing was 8-1/2" wide!! Used papers from my stash, and the Cuttlebug Scrollwork embossing folder for the frame.  Love to receive your comments!  Thanks for visiting.
