Happy Birthday

Hi friends!

Happy Friday! I'm here to share a card I made last night. Have you ever had an idea in your head for a card but haven't been able to find the time to craft? That was me this week! I had the idea tossing around all week but it wasn't til last night that I was able to see if my idea worked or not. I'm entering the card in a few challenges. Much to my surprise, the sketch featured on the Seize the Sketch site was very similar to the idea I had in my head! I tweaked my idea just a bit to use the sketch. Also, the Simon Wednesday Challenge site (from Simon Says Stamp!) had a challenge where we had to use a product that they currently carry in their store. Finally, the Word Art Wednesday site has an "anything goes" challenge. The free Scripture download for this week is one of my favorites, too, so make sure to check them out. Below is my card and the sketch:
I LOVE this die from Simon Says Stamp! It's the Fresh Daisies die and it's so delicate and beautiful. I used paper from DCWV's "Luxury Stack" and put the die cut piece into the main panel. The sentiment is from Hampton Arts and I embossed it in silver. The butterfly was added for a pop of color and it's from the dollar store--love using things all different places! I used a scallop punch from Fiskars and then added some gems to show the trail of the butterfly. Can't wait to give this card to a very special friend tonight!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
