Happy Birthday

Hi everyone thanks for stopping by.  Today's theme for the Card A Day Blog is Happy Birthday.

I started with a dark purple card base then pattern paper.  I used my Cricut and Design Studio  to size and cut out the "Far East" background piece.  I cut the flower out on three different shades of purple, the leaf out a green and the butterfly out of three shades of yellow.

I inked all the edges of the pieces and layered them onto my card base.  I then stamped the sentiment onto what card stock and cut it into a banner shape.  After everything was in place I added stickles to the top layer of the butterfly and on the inside of the flower.

To finish off the card I added the pattern paper to the inside of the card with a white mat. Don't forget to enter the challenges we have this month.
