Happy Birthday

Well all I can say is thank god for Pinterest, needed to make a birthday card in a hurray before Christmas and after all those Christmas cards my mind was blank. But Pinterest came to the rescue and this is my version of This card

Have put my own spin on it and funny how the colours have changed,they are all shades of purple in real life.
Used four different embossing folders and scraps of stampin up card. EK Success 'butterfly punch', pearls are Kort & Godt and stamped greeting from a stampin up set.
As I have used scraps for this card am entering it in to the challenge over at Pixies Crafty Workshop
Knew I had this card in draft for a reason :-)
No crafting for me at the moment since before Xmas so made cards ahead just in case as middle son is home at the moment until he moves into new place and my craft room has now become his bedroom and as he loves me so much for looking after him over Christmas with this dreaded bug has now decided to share the sore throat with me!
Hope you all had a super Christmas

  8. A brilliant card. I adore Butterflies and the colour's are superb. This is a great take on the original card. I feel like I have been making Christmas cards like forever so am determined to stay away from them for a while. Only trouble is I have to tidy my desk and drawers up in order to find anything else to work with! Hugs Mrs A.

  24. Very clever & imaginative use of your snippets. Pinterest is great, isn't it? Wonderful inspiration, just like visiting at the Snippets Playground and seeing all the creativity. Liked your use of the purples on this one, and the embossing added so much texture & interest. The finishing butterfly on each banner was so cute. TFS & Hugs
