Butterfly Birthday

 Happy Thursday everyone!  Where has the week gone?  I feel like it was just Monday.  No big plans here today...just the usual at home mom stuff...But I do have a cute card to show today.

  A few of my regular stamping ladies are co-workers and they bring their club projects into their office and show them off.  After seeing the club projects some of their other co-workers got interested in how to do stamping.  We've started doing a regular little class at their office making a few quick projects to introduce them to Stampin' Up! and papercrafting.

  Last night they made this sweet and simple birthday card.
  This is a long skinny card that fits into Stampin' Up's! long open ended envies.  We used a piece of the Sale-a-bration Everyday Enchantment DSP mounted right on the Whisper White base.  Then we stamped the sweet bench from Have a Seat in Soft Suede and mounted that on a piece of Pool Party.

  The sentiment from Bring on the Cake is stamped in Soft Suede and then hand trimmed into a banner.  The ladies got to play with the Beautiful Wings embosslit to make some butterflies to embellish the card.  The larger butterfly is popped up on a tiny piece of dimensional.  Each butterfly is accented with a small adhesive rhinestone.  I love how the die cut butterflies go with the little butterflies in the matchy matchy!  Everything ties together!  We even adhered some butterflies to the inside of the card.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
