Birthday Card ~ Birthday Butterfly

OMGoodness has it really been almost a week since I posted last?
Where oh where did this summer go?
We spent this weekend at my father-in-law's house.
We had one of those rare warm sunny Oregon beach weekends.
He does not have internet access. I forgot what that was like. lol.
It was so nice to just hang out and talk.
I was able to read my daughter's latest novel rewrite. Amazing!
Her true passion is become a published author.

On to my card.
I got a little free time to create using this week's VLV sketch.
I went with a grey and white color combo with a pop of pink.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Butterfly and frame from the Die Sidekicks stamp set from Verve Stamps.
*Sentiment from the Be Blessed stamp set from Verve Stamps.
*Frame cut using the Vintage Oval Die from Verve Stamps.
*Butterfly cut using the All Aflutter die set from Verve Stamps.
*Designs paper from a Heidi Swapp 6x8 pad from American Crafts.
*Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad from Tsukineko.

May your day always be filled with love and laughter.
