A Birthday Card and Butterfly

This weekend was spent working on the basement, exploring in the garden, getting ready for my school to start on Monday (the boys have another week of vacation) and a little time out to celebrate a birthday.  We had a great time and enjoyed some good bbq.

For our friend Helen, I wanted to make a nice card and incorporate a little stitching.  She's a fellow crafter and loves quilting and knitting.  Here's the card I made using patterned paper from Kaiser Craft's "Lush" collection.
I decided to continue the theme to the inside of the card, to help complete the look.  I have been inspired to do this so many times by fellow crafty blogger Anne Marie who always does a beautiful job inside and outside of her cards!
And then just to leave you with a little something extra, here's a shot I was able to capture in the garden this afternoon....


  1. Oh my goodness, I love the warm earthy colors! Very pretty card!

  2. Great card, I love the colors of it. the inside is great too, I need to work on that on my own cards. Beautiful butterfly photo too, TFS.


Thanks for the comments! I read all of them and enjoy hearing from readers!
