A Butterfly Birthday

Happy Monday Everyone!
Between working on holiday cards and goodies for an upcoming show,
I decided to breakaway and create something just for fun using
a few dies I had laying on my table that I received earlier last week
from the Dies R Us Store.

 The dies I'm referring to are the Carabelle Art Cut 'In the Nature' #AC60008

Carabelle Art Cut Die - In The Nature

Poppystamps - Dies - Petal Ribbon

During my creating time I decided to have a look at what
challenges were out there in blogland that I could aim this card towards and I found that
over on the Butterfly Challenge their current challenge is: #66 Butterflies + Q is for Quotes and/or Quick Silver
I'm going with the 'Quick Silver' approach using Silver Stickles across the upper left top & side as well as a few (Martha Stewart 3-in-1 butterfly punch) Silver Metallic butterflies.

A few other challenges I'd like to share in are:
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge #45 - Anything Goes
Just Us Girls Challenge #369 - Metallic
Brown Sugar Challenge #224 - Anything Goes

Well I guess I'd better get back to work ...
 But before I go, here's a peek at the inside of my card:

Thanks for much for stopping by and  as always . . .

Papers:  White cs, Medium Blue cs, Silver Metallic
Dies: Identified above
Accessories:  Nuvo Crystal Drops 'Navy Blue', Nuvo Crystal Drops 'Dandelion Yellow', Silver Stickles, Martha Stewart punch

Oh, very fun and pretty! I was just looking at that Petal Ribbon the other day and thinking how I'd like to use it again. Also got some new butterflies, but all this has to wait till after Christmas cards are done, I guess. Thank YOU for sharing a breath of fresh air!
