Happy Birthday - Layered Blue & White Butterfly

Hi, Friends......

I am here with a fresh spring butterfly card to share with you. I followed one of the color selections for Mrs. A's Butterfly Wheel this fortnight: D is for Denim Blue. I absolutely adore the clean look of just blue and white together. Reminds me of the tangy smell of laundry fresh off the line on a brisk spring day.....mmmmmm.....nothing better!

I have a ton of really pretty patterned paper in my stash that often sits unused. This background piece really spoke to me, so I went with a super-simple design that can be easily replicated for numerous occasions with different patterns, colors, stamps, and dies. I love how it turned out!!

Supplies used include:
Serendipity - Floral Butterfly stamp and die set
Lawn Fawn - Hang in There stamp set
Versafine ink in Majestic Blue
Various DCWV patterned paper and solid cardstock
Core'dinations/Darice solid cardstock

Hope you like my pretty card today. Has spring arrived at your house? If not, hopefully soon!!! Thank you for stopping by.
