Butterfly Birthday Wishes

I love this butterfly set from Paper Trey. I stamped the butterfly once on the white oval and then again and cut out and adhered on top of the first stamped image using glue dots just in the center so the wings are free. Before adhering, I wanted the butterfly to have antenae things, so I just inked up the outline butterfly on the side between the top and bottom wings and stamped. It had the perfect arch and looks much better than if I would have tried to free hand it with a marker. The "happy birthday" is also Paper Trey.

The background of the card is used with all my scraps from DCWV thank you card kit.

Now if only spring would REALLY show up, so we could see the butterflies!


  1. What a great the scraps especially!

  2. Beautiful, Debbie! What a great idea on the antennae; I've always done it the hard way instead of the smart way. :-) I liked the pieced-quilt-looking background as well!

  3. what a pretty card, debbie - i love it! your background is sooo original and eyecatching! and i like the way you gave the butterfly that dimension. ~maria
