A 'Happy Birthday' Card...

Tuesday, June 1, 2010

Hello there!  I was a afraid I'd struggle to make a card this morning since I'd had such a long break over the weekend.  I was pleasantly surprised how easily this card came together.  This card uses the current challenge from Embellish Magazine.  The challenge was to use kraft, black, and green as your colors and your card must include butterflies.

Here's a close-up so you can see how I wrapped the ribbon above the oval.  Click on the picture to see it larger.
The green oval edges are sponged with black ink and the edges of the kraft layer are sponged in green ink.

I hope you all had a wonderfully long and relaxing weekend!  Thanks so much for visiting me today!!!

{Happy Birthday}
