Birthday Blog Hop for Asha

Hello, and welcome to weekly challenge at Tuesday Throwdown and our SURPRISE Birthday Blog Hop for the lovely Asha! We are collaborating with the MHKDesigns blog this week for a fun blog hop for Asha's birthday. Our theme this week at Tuesday Throwdown is "Distressing."  You will notice my card is on the mild side of distressed.  I roughed up the edges and did a little inking but that's about it. There are many crafters who make  beautiful distressed creations but for some reason I have a hard time messing up that paper. We hope you will join us this week and play along in our challenge. You have until mid-day on Monday, June 27th to link your creation. 

Now onto the blog hop, you should have arrived here from the blog of Shawna Standish.  If not, start at the MHKDesigns blog to complete the hop and for more chances to WIN!  We are celebrating a very special lady today, and we're doing so by creating beachy birthday cards to wish her many happy returns!

My Birthday Card is more tropical than beachy. The digital Butterfly Wisdom set is from MHKDesigns. I printed the set onto Very Vanilla and Mint Macaroon cardstock and fussy-cut the one butterfly to add a pop of color into the butterfly collage. All other supplies are by Stampin' Up!

Thank you so much for joining in our hop to say "Happy Birthday" to a dear friend!  Your next stop on the hop is Bridget Collins blog!
