Happy Birthday Butterfly – by Heidi Blankenship

Today Heidi shares a vintage inspired card, done up in a clean and simple manner. And I do love the combination of vintage and clean and simple. Vintage is always so pretty, and clean and simple translates to fairly quick and easy — always a good thing!  Heidi used a beautiful stamp image by LaBlanche.  They are lovely stamps if you’re not familiar with them — very vintage, highly detailed, white silicone mounted on white foam, beautifully packaged — and all at very affordable prices. And yes, all that white cleans up beautifully.  Heidi used dies for her sentiment and butterfly and added some fun, sparkly sequins. Take a look:


Love the vintage charm, the wonderful blue/brown color combo AND that it’s easy to make!

FUN sentiment created with a die!

You can find Heidi’s post on her blog here.
