Happy Birthday

I created this card to meet these challenges: Crafty Secrets sketch challenge over at Split Coast Stampers, butterflies challenge at Our Creative Corner, Creatilicious (flowers and bling), Cute Card Thursday's touchy-feely (cards we want to be able to touch...hope the velvet and lace might qualify...), the ABC challenge (make it sparkle), Creative Cottage (things with wings), Practical Scrappers (glitter and bling), Creative Card Crew's birthday card challenge, and finally, the Wee Memories challenge (vintage theme, use ribbon)

This gorgeous vintage image is from Crafty Secrets. The background is Cuttlebug-embossed with the Textured Textile folder. I made the little lace rosette from lace I dyed in my microwave oven with peony petals from last summer's garden, then I added an Offray satin ribbon rose in the centre. The tiny butterfly is punched with Martha's butterfly punch, then glittered with Tulip Fashion Glitter. The bottom edge is done with Martha's lace border punch.



Thanks somuch for stopping by today.I wish you a happy and creative weekend!

Found your blog from a link at Crafty Secrets...oh happy day! Your birthday card is absolutely gorgeous. Many times the addition of so many elements leaves a card looking frenetic, but you have it just right (a very rare talent). I look forward to delving into the rest of your blog. Thank you for sharing!
