Many wishes for.......

a beautiful day!!!  Well, I hope all you blog readers have a beautiful day today! It's Saturday - so we all should, right?

I've been trying to make birthday cards for my 'stock' and this card today is one of them!  I followed the There She Goes #145 Sketch and also played along with the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge #107 of using banners.


I started off choosing these tiny butterflies from a TSG stamp set.  I stamped out four of them for layering.  Next, I chose some American Crafts paper and stamped the sentiment on a Lawn Fawn banner.  The card was looking a bit bland even after popping the banner up and even popping up the butterflies.......so I decided to add the "Happy Birthday" under the banner.

Here's the sketch, which I flipped on it's side:


And here's the Hand Stamped Sentiment's challenge:


Thanks for your visit!
