Birthday Butterfly

Happy St. Patrick's Day a day early, everyone!  I've got a green birthday card to show you for this green kind of weekend.  :-)

The challenges I'm entering - Mojo Monday with this sketch:
...and DYSU challenge - Use Your Favorite Color.  I have several faves, green among them.


This is going into the kit of cards for my step-mom's birthday gift.  She likes to keep a supply of my cards on hand to give to others.  Hope she likes this one!



I didn't include any details on the making of this card, but if you have questions, feel free to ask away!  My email address is on the right sidebar, near the top.

Remember I mentioned that we had recently redone our bathroom?  I have pix to show you at my new blog, bleu hydrangea.  I'd love to have you visit.  :o)

My blog may be rather quiet for the next week.  My mom arrives for her week-long visit tomorrow, and we will be spending time with each other.  I'm sure I can sneak onto the computer a bit here and there, but probably won't be visiting blogs until after she goes home.

Thanks for joining me!  Have a wonderful week.

I was so busy reading your new blog I almost forgot to come back and comment here! I love your card especially since blue and green are my two most favorite colors in the world. I cannot ever decide which is my favorite one.....sort of depends on the day. Plus you have that butterfly on there and we all know I love butterflies. :D

Seriously, your card is gorgeous. I love the MM sketch and hope I get a chance to play along this week. Beautiful papers too!
hugs,
Ellen

Your bright butterfly is BEAUTIFUL!! I love the colors you put together for this lovely, soothing card. Fantastic!

Stella said...

Your step-mom will love it. And never send it someone; I thin kshe frames it and puts it in her living room. And so would I :)'The butterfly is an eye catcher; one of a kind and breathtaking!

Oh, my, I looked at the photos of your bathroom and it's gorgeous! The details are wonderful, just like your cards. Coincidentally, we're working on my bathroom right now, too. By the way, your step-mom is sure to love this card. I like how you brought out the gorgeous Floral background for this. Very pretty!
