A Belated Birthday Surprise + today's card

Hello Everyone,

My Dear, Kind and Wonderful friend Marian surprised me with a very late Birthday gift and card.  I wanted to show this card to you.  It's absolutely gorgeous in real life.  Love the neutral tones and textures.

She said the inspiration for this card came from Joybel Crafts.  I think that's a retail store.

Here is a closeup, I think the birdcage is a die, but she assured me she spent a lot of time cutting it out for me, LOL!  I know how much she hates cutting.

And there is a matching envelope, and this time she did decorate it with the SU Bird builder punch.

Thank you so much, my Dear, Kind and Wonderful friend.  I love this card.  Have always loved those Bird cages.

And now onto today's post

This is another card I've created to use up some extra embossed vellum butterflies that I made last week.  Too many bits laying around at the moment, LOL!  Yes back to my favourite things, Butterflies.

The cardstock is Primrose Petals for the base with Basic Black and the cardstock weight Vellum for my layered Butterfly.  The black Apothecary Accent label used for my Butterfly to sit on has been embossed with the Mosaic embossing folder and I love how that pattern is continued on the Print Poetry patterned paper from the stack.  I've also trimed a black border with the Large Scallop Edgelit and embossed it with the matching Delicate Designs Border embossing folder for my bottom edge.

For a relatively simple card, I love how this turned out.  Again, I'm using up the scraps.  Gotta love that.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope to hear from you again soon.
