Happy Birthday Butterfly



This card is for my big sister, Tammy! A funny story for you...I was born three days before her 13th birthday, so our mom & dad brought me home from the hospital on her birthday. She told my parents that she wanted a new dress for her birthday, not a new sister:) LOL! What can I say...my sister has always been the honest type:) I should also mention that Mom did have a new dress for her all wrapped up in the closet.


I used the Mojo Monday sketch #95 for the layout of my sister's birthday card. The color combination came from The Pink Elephant #23 Color Challenge. The colors for the challenge are Red, Blue & Darker Blue.



Hannah colored a picture of Clifford while I was working on my card, and then she got to work on this special card for her Aunt Tammy's birthday, too. So sweet:)

Just the right amount of each color. Feels wonderful! LOVE, love your butterfly! Great idea to make the base and then the raised wings a little different. Love that!

Your little Hannah did a great job with her card too, and Hannah, I LOVE the way you colored Clifford. He's a very big dog! Good job!
