A Butterfly Birthday

Apologies in advance for the poor photography.  I had to make a birthday card for a teacher at my son's school a week ago.  This is not uncommon.  Last fall I was asked to make 28 cards (14 birthday, 14 anniversary) within a week.  That was pressure.  (Mental note, start making more birthday and anniversary cards to avoid the same issue this fall)

Onto the card I am sharing today....

This card came together really really fast.  Love when that happens.  And I love how it looked.  I also found out later that the teacher loves butterflies...Double bonus!

I used the PTI large butterfly and small butterfly dies (this was pre-Beautiful butterfly dies).  The base butterfly was die cut from vellum.  The others from PP.  Brown glittered bling forms the butterfly bodies. 

I zigzag stitched the borders before I adhered it to the card base.  I "sew" love the effect stiching on cards makes. 

The happy birthday stamp is PTI.  Ribbon is from my stash.

Finished card is 5 x 7 since 40 families needed to sign!

Love this color combo....

This layout is also one that would be easy to replicate.
