Butterfly birthday


Today I am combining two challenges - Gayatri's Inspired by Pinterest and CASE Study #83.

I follow Gayatri on Pinterest (as well as here in blogland), and her pins are always inspiring. I don't know how she managed to choose just one image for this challenge, LOL! This is the image.
I love butterflies, don't you?

At CASE Study this week, the muse is still Laura Bassen (yay!), with this lovely card.
I love the layout. I love the simplicity.

By the time I finished my card, it wasn't as simple as I had planned, but I still like it. :-)
I used PTI Background Basics: Circles and Pretty Peonies. The colours are SU! poppy parade, pretty in pink, and soft suede. Card is PTI white (the card) and SU! white (the front panels).

Thanks for stopping by to visit. I hope you like the card. :-)

Love your always unique take challenges-this one in particular-great idea to use the sentiment vertically.

Absolutely gorgeous! The red on the tips of the butterfly wings just makes them pop, and I love how you stamped on the patterned paper strip as well. Thanks for joining us this week at CASE Study!
