Floral Happy Birthday with Butterflies

Hi, Friends....

I'm here with a pretty card for the Unstampabelles Challenge - Flowers, Flowers, and more Flowers with a twist of Add Bling. It's easy to make no-stamping cards when I use Graphic 45 papers because they are sooooooooo gorgeous!! I dressed up this card with lots of layered flowers and added two sizes of leaves die cut from scraps of gleaming foiled copper cardstock. LOVE!!! The butterflies and violet colors even qualify this for a couple of current Butterfly challenges....YAY!

Products used include:
Graphic 45 - Place in Time Collection
Prima flowers
Verve - Sprightly Sprigs die set (discontinued)
Scraps of DCWV copper foiled cardstock
Distress Ink in Walnut Stain
Want 2 Scrap - Adhesive Pearls
Core'dinations black cardstock

Hope you liked this vintage-style card. I hope this encourages you to get out your hoarded G45 papers, too. They are so much fun to play with!!! Thank you for stopping by and leaving your nice comments!!

  13. How in the world did I miss all of these cards?? I feel like I've been in a cave somewhere and just surfaced to find a whole treasure trove of inspiration. I am loving all of your Graphic 45 cards but this one is especially beautiful. The rose and pink hues are so pretty with touches of gold. The dark mats around your panels really let the images stand out and shine!


THANK YOU so much for taking the time to leave a comment. Your kind words encourage me so very much!!!

Have a lovely day!
