Birthday Butterfly

Two posts in one night!  ... I'm playing catch-up.   : )

For this post I'm sharing a birthday card I made for the Bitten by the Bug 2 Flourish challenge.  You're supposed to make a card using a flourish from the Cindy Loo cartridge... but I don't have that cartridge. So you can use any cartridge that has a flourish.

Here's my card:

I cut my flourishes & the butterfly from the Graphically Speaking cartridge.
I cut the tag from Elegant Edges.
My papers are from Pink Paislee.
The Happy Birthday sentiment stamp is from My Creative Time
I used the Fiskars Combo Border Corner punch on the matt layer.
I used foam squares to pop up the butterfly and the flourishes.
I inked all the edges and added some pearls.

Thanks for taking a look.  I'd love for you to leave a comment.
Each one is a blessing. 


  1. So beautiful! Love how the flourish looks like the butterflies flight. Lovely papers as well. Thanks for joining us at BBTB2. xxD

  2. this is just lovely...I always love something honoring a beautiful butterfly, but the fourish just absolutely makes it shine.
    Thanks for joining us on our BBTB2 flourish challenge.

  3. Gorgeous! I always like it when I see a cut from a cartridge that I didn't know was on there. I had no clue that flourish or beautiful butterfly were on that cartridge. Thanks so much for sharing with us at BBTB2.

  4. Stunning and elegant. I love the colors and the papers. The butterfly bursting out of the flourish is gorgeous. Thanks for joining us at BBTB2.
