Awesome Butterfly ~

I’m slowly but surely working on that birthday card list!  This one is for a special girl about to celebrate a very special birthday – sweet 16!  I went with a CASE of Danielle Flanders because I just wanted something fun and fresh without putting my brain into too much turmoil.

I opted for a springy color combo of Coastal Cabana (SU), Berry Sorbet (PTI) and Weathered Wood (Ranger Distress).  The sentiment is a combo of that fantabulous ‘Awesome’ word die from Lil Inker Designs and a PTI stamp.

     I left the tops of the wings and the antennae free from dimensional foam tape so I could pop them up a bit.  Probably will be lost on her since I had to package it up and send it off in the mail, but it definitely makes a difference in a photo!  Ha! 

The inside is then decorated to make a statement!  I just adore word dies and the font on this Mama Elephant birthday one is gorgeous.

I hope she loves it!  Now off to make 3 cards for some lovelies that have birthdays back to back to back – March 3, 4 & 5.  Wonder if they can guess who they are?  Winking smile  Thanks for popping by!
