Butterfly Birthday Blog Hop

Hello! Today we are celebrating my sister Sandra's birthday with a blog hop! I hope you can join us, there is a fabulous grand prize if you make you're way through the hop and I'm sure there will be chances to win blog candy too! 
Please start HERE.

Sandra is a wonderful person and a great sister, I actually talked her into buying a Cricut years ago and ever since our crafty journey has grown, we both started blogs at the same time and made lots of friends along the way. It's so nice having a sister that shares my passion for crafting too, and it's fun being able to share Cricut carts too! :) Happy Birthday Sandra! 

Here's my card for today..

Sandra asked that we make anything with a butterfly on it..right away I new I wanted to make a shaped card. They are fun and easy. I used my April Showers Cricut cartridge for the butterflies and the flowers/leaves are from the Walk in my Gardern cart.  I used pop dots for each layer, did some embossing with my Cuttlebug, inking and a few spritz of Pearl glimmer mist. I also did some hand stitching with some pink floss and added the floral wire for the attenas.  The sentiment is from the "Quirky Quotes" set by Scrappy Mom's Stamps.
I hope you like it!

**Blog Candy**
I will be giving away the PK441-Cute & Cuddly 1 1/8" set by Peachy Keen Stamps.
Just leave one comment on this post.

Ok, your next stop on the hop is to miss

Have a great day! :)


Supplies:
Pattern Paper-MME-Stella & Rose
Aril Showers-butterflies
Scrappy Mom's Stamps
Cuttlebug, chalk ink, glimmer mist
