Happy Birthday Blog Hop!!




Its Rhonda Helm's birthday and she invited a group of us to join her in this special blog hop to celebrate!!
If you came from Nicky's blog,  then you are in the right place. If you just happened upon my blog, please start at the beginning with Rhonda at www.craftingwithblue.blogspot.com so you don't miss a thing!

I created a birthday card for this hop, which seemed only fitting! lol

 
I started with Stampin' Up's Kiwi Kiss card stock and layered with Cameo Coral, then distressed the edges with the distressing tool and ink. There is a piece of washi tape at the bottom with a piece of lace layered on top of that. I added two sweet little paper flowers, some beaded trim and a little feather. The butterfly is from SU's Simple Friendship stamp set and was stamped with Cameo Coral ink and then embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder . I stamped the swirl from the same stamp set and adhered the butterfly with hot glue and shaped the wings to stand up.  The sentiment is from Elegant Cheer and was stamped in Chocolate Chip ink. This card came together rather quickly which is unusual for me! It's simple, yet dimensional, which I love.
