Celebrate The Occasion - Birthday Post

Hi Everyone,

I am excited to let you all know that I have been invited to be a member of the Celebrate The Occasion design team.  This is my first design team and I feel super honored that they asked me to be a part of it.  Make sure you check out this blog, it is a group of super awesome ladies and it's a Challenge Blog all about celebrating the many special occasions of life that fall throughout the year.  :)  So make sure you join us and tell all your other crafty friends about us!

So for our first post, we are to create a project with a birthday theme.  I decided I wanted to do a card with a butterfly as the focal point of it.  I Love Hearts and Butterflies... :)  Anyway, I chose to use the first butterfly on the Rock Princess cart.  It ended up having seven layers all together and I really like the way it turned out.  I tried to go outside of my normal self and use lots of bright colors!

So, here are the details.  It is a 5x7 card.  I used the Happy Birthday cuttlebug embossing folder and inked it up with Vintage Distressed Ink, distressed some of the edges with the Tim Holtz distresser, blinged it up a little bit with Paper Studio gemstones.  I hope you guys like it.  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.  Thank you...
