A Butterfly Birthday

Hello Friends!

Are you ready for Christmas?  I think I am (well as much as I'm going to be lol).  So today I'm switching away from Christmas cards, tags and such ... to share a fun creation that actually kept me awake the other evening after I had gone to bed for the night.  

Doesn't it figure it's after I finally stop for the day that my brain comes up with this project LOL!

 This card was created for the Color Hues Challenge #8 ...

 I've created my background panel using Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks in blue & green then die cut the Memory Box 'Reverse Butterfly Collage' die (#99145) from white card stock and adhered over top the colorful panel.   I've used a fine tip black marker to create the butterfly antennae and finished it off with Nuvo green and blue crystal drops.

Challenges to share in:

Creative Knockout Challenge #381 - Anything Goes 
As You Like It Challenge - Favorite person to create for (family or friend) and Why
I enjoy creating for both family & friends.  There are certain friends I send cards to who always save them as they know how much time & love I've put into them.  At holiday time I don't make the same card for all ... I make a variety of cards then pick one that fits the person I'm sending to.  This year I sent 100 holiday cards as there are many people I won't get to see in person and I just wanted to let them know we were thinking of them!!
Krafty Chicks Challenge #538 - CAS
Crafty Creations December Challenge - Anything Goes
Creative Moments Challenge #204 - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Please stay safe & healthy!

As always . . .
