Butterfly Birthday Card

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How is your week going? I hope you haven't been too badly affected by Storm Gareth. Interestingly the next storm will be called Hannah. There was a list of names on the BBC news site. I am having a quiet week which means there is a lot of time to craft. This is great because it gives me a chance to catch up before it all gets busy again.

I was recently very lucky and a won a die set during Holley's month long celebration of 9 nines years since her successful brain surgery. Holley's blog can be visited  here
Every year in the month of February Holley gets lots sponsors and she is able to offer  many prizes around the world. I was thrilled when my prize arrived through the post. 

I had a bit of a tidy up recently and I found a stack of foiled card like the one I have used here. 

I won this wonderful butterfly die. The butterfly cuts beautifully and it has a die for a mat under the detail.  I used some paper that I had decorated using the shaving foam technique. I used the Double Pierced Square dies from Creative Expressions to cut the mats for the butterfly. 

I used a Creative Expressions die to create the sentiment. It was cut in purple and some more of the shaving foam paper. 

Thanks again to Holley for my fabulous prize. I made this card for one of my husband's work colleagues who is having a special birthday soon. I have also made a card  for the whole team to sign. 

I would like to enter the following challenges: 

Enjoy the rest of the week 

Happy Crafting

Congrats on your win Jackie, such a beautiful die and a beautiful card too..
I have been up most of the night with the storm, I thought the roof would lift for sure at one point, it was really wild, still blowing out there and bitterly cold, but not as bad as it was thankfully...enjoy your day stay safe.x

Hi Jackie,
what a very gorgeous Butterfly die.
I love your card and the super design.
That shaving foam card looks so lovely die cut into the sentiment and the Butterfly.
Not ever tried the shaving foam technique so that's something new I must have a go at.
Love the Happy Birthday paper it's so pretty.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
