Butterflying by with a Birthday Hi

This card was made at the request of one of our loyal customers (and wonderful friend).  She wanted a birthday card for little girls.  Well, rather than making it specific for "little" girls, we decided to make it versatile for "any" girl.  Once again, although this card uses retired DSP and ribbon, any patterned or stamped background and thick ribbon will work - let your creativity be your guide.  It's a simple design using the Flight of the Butterfly set and coordinating butterfly punch (yes, we agree, EVERY stamp set should come with coordinating punches!).  We used the retired flower trio punch (sorry), but you can substitute flowers from the Itty Bitty Bits punch trio or the Boho Blossoms punch (as artists, we ALWAYS have options!).  The centers of the flowers were done using our awesome white uni-ball Signo gel pen.  The sentiment inside is from the Curly Cute set.  The color combo is Baja Breeze, So Saffron, and Soft Suede - just perfect for birthday wishes to "girls" of ANY age!

Beach Birthday Card

We used lots of Big Shot products to create this bright beach birthday card. The background combines three embossing folders - Oh My Stars...
