A Birthday Card!

I wanted to make a pretty card for one of my friends whose birthday it was today. My mojo just wasn't what it should have been and, although I spent some time on it, it didn't turn out to be just what I expected. I suppose we all have days like that!

I used two pretty whimsical butterfly images by Doodlebug and coloured them with Copics, I then stamped out the Waltzingmouse label with Memento Rose Bud ink and used a little Papertrey Ink sentiment in the centre. I added some pink grosgrain ribbon and some little pink rhinestones to finish after scoring a trellis design on the paler blue cardstock (The Papermill - before it closed!).

Could I also say a huge thank you to my friend Joyce for her hospitality and generosity yesterday! She sent me away from her house armed with loads of crafting goodies - thank you again, Joyce!


  1. You could say thank you but honestly you gave me a start doing it publicly!!!! LOL!! Sharing is everything. A very pretty card indeed...glad to see you are even posting given your busyness!

  2. Hi Jill. This is really pretty. Love the cute butterflies and colours of your card. Enjoy your crafting goodies. Donna
