Butterfly Birthday Wishes!

Hi friends! So sorry I've been away for a few days! Last week we had Grandma come and stay for the week and my oldest daughter, Stephanie, who has been travelling, surprised us on Easter Sunday by coming home!! I had lots of bloggy crafty plans, but decided to put them aside for a week and take some family time.

I do want to share this pretty birthday card with you that I made for my sister's birthday last month. I was at a scrapbook crop and decided to use some of the BoBunny papers I was working with on a layout to make a birthday card. The background paper is just so lovely with the birds, flora and butterflies!

I had also been playing around with some Distress Oxide Inks and turned the background I was working on into a tag base for my focal image. The Oxide Inks also worked to watercolour my rosette ribbon lace a wonderful violet colour!

Inside, I stamped a birthday wish and layered a fussy cut mason jar from the BoBunny collection. The purple DOX ink stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment wonderfully!

A piece of dyed silk ribbon tied up my tag and a bit of Confetti Stickles added some bling to the butterfly from the BoBunny cut apart sheet. I'm very happy to say my sister loved her card!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you a wonderful, crafty week!
