Birthday Butterflies & Flowers

Hello Friends!
I have another birthday card to share today and
I've used the sketch over on the SumMore Fun Challenge Blog
as my starting point.

Here is the sketch ...

The designer paper I've used today is an oldie but goodie from Prima called 'Madeline'.  I used the center of one 6x6 sheet to die cut my blue matting panel and then from the edge of that same sheet, die cut the floral circle.  The dies I have used today are from Tutti Designs ...

TUTTI-418 Scalloped Stitched Nesting Rectangles

I love having coordinating paper packs in my stash for those times
when I am in need of some quick cards.

A quick source of inspiration for me is to jump over to Paper Playful and check out
some of the sketches various blogs are sharing for their challenges.  And of course,
if I can find the right color challenge that fits ... that's a plus too!

Other challenges to share in:
Crafty Friends Challenge #94 - Use More Than One Die
Seize the Birthday Challenge - Anything Goes

Thanks to all of you for stopping by today!
Here's wishing you a FABULOUS weekend ahead!
 As always ...
