Butterfly Birthday Card and matching Bookmark

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors 

I am trying out new blogger I am not sure that I like it much. How are you getting on? The weather has been lovely. Our garden is proving to be a delight. Last year we treated ourselves to a table and chairs set for the garden. This year we have been able to have a lot of meals outside. 

My friend's birthday was a week ago. The present I ordered came yesterday and we delivered it on our walk this morning. 


Here is the card I made for her. The background is some inky kitchen roll stuck to card. 


This is the Butterflies in Flight Mini Striplet die from Creative Expressions. I cut the separate butterflies and put them behind the panel to make the butterflies stand out. I cut three of them to fill the card. 


I added the sentiment to the card. 


As I didn't have the present I decided to make a matching book mark. The die set seems to lend itself to making bookmarks. I was lucky that there were enough leftovers to make it.  My friend loved her card and bookmark and was very understanding about the delay with her present. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

I hope that you have a good weekend. 

Take care and stay safe.

Hi Jackie,
Love your wonderful card and that kitchen roll paper background is so pretty and such gorgeous colours.
A very pretty die cut used as well.
Great idea the bookmark till her present arrived.
Not sure what to do with Bloglovin and the new blogger.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Some lovely makes this week Jackie I hope your daughter was able to enjoy her birthday
I have this die I love the idea of cutting out the butterflies and placing them behind the panel A great way of using scraps of card rather than cut more panels and paper piecing them
