A Birthday in Flight

I hope everyone had a blessed Sunday today - I've been away all day so I'm posting late and really should be in bed! I seem to be saying that on every post - can you get the idea that I'm a late night stamper!?!? It was a cloudy day here - we really need rain but only got a couple of sprinkles - some showers are supposed to come tomorrow and Tuesday.

My card today was made for the Featured Stamper challenge over at Split Coast. Today's featured stamper was Michelle (Sf9erfan) who has a delightful gallery of cards - I chose this card to case (Copy And Selectively Edit). I changed the colors and stamps used and punched the butterflies instead of using a stamp - but kept the layout the same.
I thought this was a lovely birthday card and I got to use my favorite new butterfly punch again! I used Arctic Ice Stickles on the wings for a little shimmer and colored the bodies with a black sharpie pen. They are attached to the panel with glue zots and creased to make them 3D. The great ruffled ribbon is from Flourishes.
Thanks so much for stopping by to check in with me today - I really appreciate it!
