Butterfly Birthday

Hi there!  Just popping in to share a birthday card I made a few months ago in preparation for my surgery/recuperation, so my blog could look busy.  ;-D



The frame, stamped in Pear Pizzazz, and sentiment, stamped in London Fog gray, are from Inspired By Stamping's Vintage Frames set.  The ticking stripe stamp is by Hero Arts, making its debut here on my blog.


I'm glad I could fit this card into the following challenges:  Seize The Birthday - "Anything Goes" and Simon Says Stamp Birthday challenge.

Thanks for taking a peek today!

There are just too many gorgeous elements here to mention, but your combination of stamps and papers with your wonderful design is just stunning! I'm in awe of how you managed to get so many posts together in anticipation of your down time. Hats off, Colleen.
