Fall Butterfly Birthday Card

Good day crafty friends! There are still a few butterflies fluttering around my flowers, but a hard freeze is expected in the next few days. The freeze will definitely put and end to the remaining annuals that have been trying to hang on. So, I was inspired to use a butterfly on this Fall Butterfly Birthday Card. The floral patterned paper is by Bo Bunny (Stay Awhile Collection) and the Granny Apple Green polka dots is by Stampin' Up!. Using Memento black ink the butterfly from the Beautiful Day stamp set by Stampin' Up! was stamped and then colored with a mix of Stampin' Blends and Copic markers. The butterfly was fussy-cut and adhered flat to the card. To finish the card the Happy Birthday Wishes sentiment from the retired Avant-Garden stamp set by Stampin' Up! was matted to a Granny Apple Green scalloped oval and adhered flat for easy shipping. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day.

  1. How lucky you are, Andrea, to have a few butterflies still fluttering around your gardens. Here we were oppressed with thick smoke drifting over from British Columbia all of August and in September we had freak snowfalls. Needless to say, the butterflies found better gardens elsewhere. Love the colours you've used for your butterfly. It stands out wonderfully well against the beautiful background patterned papers. Lovely design! Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

  4. Your butterfly is so beautiful, Andrea! Such a gorgeous card! Our butterflies are long gone but we did have a few dragonflies a couple weeks ago. It's too cold now though.
