butterflies. . . .

are a favorite of my granddaughter.  I usually incorporate one or more in the birthday cards I send to her.  Here is the one I made for her this year:



I used more of my new goodies from SSS for this card.  The background was created with distress inks and the Tim Holtz doily layering stencil.  The "happy" is from Winnie and Walter, the "birthday" from a Hero Arts set and the butterfly dies are from Memory Box.    I love this doily stencil and just know it will be well used.


Submitting these to:

Simon Says Stamp summer challenge

Seize the Birthday anything goes challenge.
