Birthday Butterflies

Hello friends - it has been a busy week for us here with one thing and another - the most important being our grandson Noah's first birthday party - although his birthday is this Wednesday, his Mummy and Daddy held it early to fit in with days off and interstate family being able to visit - I will share some photos when they are edited.

One of the things I love doing with Spellbinders Dies - is using the Negative Dies - this one from Labels Forty makes a perfect frame.  I have adheres it onto yellow cardstock that has been cut slightly larger.  This is all layered onto a pre-cut white cardbase.

The gorgeous butterfly is the Spellbinders Outrageous Butterfly - and just begged to be coloured brightly using the Imagine Crafts 'featuring' Tsukineko Radiant Neon Inks and a sponge Dauber. This has been adhered to a Standard Circles LG so it did not get lost in the yellow background.  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: E-Z Adhesive Runner and 3D Foam Squares have been used on this card and Want2Scrap bling has been added to the button.  Finishing off with Celebra'tions Hip Hooray Sequins.

This card is for the following challenges:
2 Creative Chicks - Anything Goes
Card Mania - Spring
Crafting Musketeers - Spring is in the Air
Sparkles Forum Challenges - Make it Girlie
CCC Digi Challenge - Anything Goes
Fussy and Fancy -  Female Birthdays
