Papertrey Ink birthday card

Hello everyone, and welcome to Sandee, Ellen and Sara who are new followers this week. I have a spate of birthdays coming up and I made this one for my friend Angie



I took a square of white card and die cut the three butterflies from it before layering it onto some Hawaiian Shores card. I then stamped three different butterflies through the apertures in Fresh Snow ink.


I added a strip of dotty ribbon and tied a bow with an added button


before stamping the sentiment and adding some gems for the butterfly bodies to finish it off. This panel was added to the base card with some foam dots to give a little extra dimension.



We have been having glorious spring weather in Manchester, so the garden furniture has been pulled out and washed in the hope that the sunshine will last. The magnolia tree opposite our house has been particularly magnificent this year


and the spring bulbs have really responded to the sunshine




I hope you are all having a good week and thanks for looking in.

Hugs

    The out doors pictures are gorgeous. Do you bring those pots indoors during the winter. I love that your spring flowers are in pots. Wonderful idea.

  14. I've missed to much lately Carol - don't know where the time goes. Lovely butterfly card, and I love your Easter tree. Spring flowers have been extra wonderful this year I think even though there's been no rain.
