FS135 - Birthday Blessings

Today is Father's Day and my DH took our boys out while I stayed home with our sleeping toddler girl - so I thought I'd have a look at the FS challenge. This week the honour goes to Lori McAree!!! Congrats Lori and enjoy your week!!! As soon as I saw THIS CARD I knew exactly what I wanted to do and it all came together pretty much as I imagined - don't you LOVE it when that happens??!! :) I've just realised this qualifies for this week's Flutterby Wednesday challenge to make a Birthday card with a butterfly or fairy!!! :) I was also REALLY happy to make something other than a Man Card!! :)

I started with a base of white and layered with some deep pink bazzil and some Basic Grey Urban Prairie paper. The main panel is from Our Daily Bread Designs' Happy Birthday set, stamped in Jet Black Stazon and coloured with markers and a blender pen. It was then cut out with Large Circle Nestabilities and mounted on a piece of white cut with the new Lattice Pendant by Spellbinders. The sentiment is from the same set, stamped in Stazon and cut with the Ribbon Tags Trio die set. The butterfly is from the same set, coloured with markers, cut and popped up on the sentiment panel. Then I put some white satin half inch ribbon through the die cut and attached it on top of some 1 inch deep pink satin ribbon at the bottom of the card. And, because I couldn't help myself, I finished by adding some Snow Kaisercraft pearls to the top corners!! :)
