Bright Butterfly - Seize the Birthday

It's that time again!!!!  Seize the Birthday starts a new challenge today with a brand new sketch.  This time we need to see your feminine birthday cards.  We're being sponsored by SK Digis who so graciously provided images for the DT to use.


Is this a bright yellow butterfly or what!  Yep, I went with yellow on this card (which I seldom do).  The polka dot paper is from SU and the stripe is from wherever.  I printed out the butterfly twice to give it some dimension.  The lace trim is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.






How about the sketch this week!  There's so many different ways you can use this one.

Thanks for stopping by.........and be sure and check out Seize the Birthday and play along.

Super pretty Lynn. I like the yellow on this one. I use it, but it's not usually my go to color. I agree, there are so many ways to go with this sketch. If I can make it to my desk I will try to join in on this challenge.
Have a great day. Hope your painting is all done.

Very pretty you are rocking the pattern paper. Hope all is well, think you are south of the explosion right?

Hi Lynn, how bright and sunny and cheerful and sweet is this card. Even though it is yellow it seems to generate a certain calmness. I love your uncluttered cards and the lace makes it looks so very feminine.
Love,

Monica

Beautiful, Lynn. I love all the yellow, and it's a color I don't use very often either. Great dimension on the butterfly! I forget about using two layers on an image for added dimension until I see a reminder like yours. :-D
