sweet Butterfly Birthday

Hi there bloggie friends!  Yay - It's Friday!  Hope you had a good week.  As usual, time is just flying faster and faster for me.  Work has kicked it up a notch, but I've got so much crafting energy from last week's Leadership Conference that I had to squeeze this card in for the Cards Blog Challenge for the week!  As soon as I saw that the challenge was to use butterflies, I HAD to play!  I've been dying to use the Sweet Stitches paper so this was my chance.  Are you ready for the big reveal.....

I was so excited about how the card turned out - the color scheme, papers and pretty butterfly just make me smile.  I mean, this card practically made itself!  How do you like the fun embellies - from the fabric button to the pompom trim....so yummy!  I do love that Birthday font, too.  It's just so cute and shabby - perfect for the card.  Here's some more pics for ya...
Love the textured cardstock - it makes the stamped sentiment look aged and vintage-y.
One last look.  Are you in love with that paper?!  I know I am!  So, so fun!  Here's the card recipe for you:
