Birthday Butterflies

Makeup 4 the Weekend - M4TW40 Birthday Card
Flutterby Wedenesday -
FBW119 Open Challenge
SCS Sketch Challenge -
SCS Inspiration Challenge -

Thank you everyone for your well wishes regarding my recent trip to Ohio for my grandfather's funeral. It was a treasured time with family and a comforting service.

This week's Makeup 4 the Weekend challenge to make a birthday card is hosted by
Danni. And her Flutterby Wednesday challenge is an open one - just have a butterfly, fairy or angel on your card. With Dannni as the hostess for both challenges, it seemed fitting to combine these this week - especially since I'm playing catch-up after being away. {wink}

But you know, when you're playing catch-up, it takes awhile for your mojo to come back too, haha. So, I went searching for inspiration at today's inspiration challenge - perfect, right? I found this picture of a pretty blouse and it reminded me of some Ambrosia paper by Basic Grey that I have. That's also why I chose a light blue background for my card to match the light blue background of the blouse.

And then I went to this week's sketch challenge for the layout, so I wouldn't have to think too hard about that either. {LOL} The butterfly is from the Color It-Summer set and Birthday Wishes is a simple sentiment from Paper Makeup Stamps.

Here are a couple things to remember! First, Flutterby Wednesday is getting ready for something HUGE on September 1st. To participate you need to have played along in a FBW challenge before - make sure you get a card done for this week's challenge if you're a first-timer! Second, you could win a single stamp of your choice from Paper Makeup Stamps. Just play along with this weeks challenge using a PMS stamp or digi image and link it up to the
PMS blog.

Thanks for fluttering by today!
