A MIL Birthday

Didn't I tell you that February is full of birthdays - well here's another one! :) This one is going to my Mother-in-Law so I tried to make it pretty and elegant.
I started this one with a Very Vanilla card base, topped with some fawn bazzill and then topped again with some paper by Deja Views - the Sharon Ann Timeless Collection. Then I punched another strip of the fawn bazzill with my fav border punch - The Lazy Days of Summer (Fiskars) and stuck it to one side. The butterflies (aren't they gorgeous - sadly aren't mine) are from Stampin Up! - A Touch of Nature set. I stamped them in Sand Beige Versacolor on Very Vanilla Cardstock and cut them out and popped them up. To finish I've stamped the sentiment (from SU's Elegant Cheer - not in Australia yet) in Chocolate Chip and added some Kaisercraft 'Chino' pearls to the corners.
I hope she likes it --- now I have to go find a present!!!
That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!
