A Fluttery Happy Birthday – by Holly McMillen

(Enjoy $2.95 shipping to all US addresses throughout January)

Holly is with us today and she relied on pretty die cuts to create the focal image on her feminine birthday card.  A combination of leafy foliage and an intricate butterfly sit atop some pretty paper with a complimentary happy birthday greeting from our Farmhouse All Occasion Greetings set. Take a look:

Pretty, pretty!

This card make me happy, just to look at it! The colors are beautiful.

That pretty paper is from Paisley Days by Kaisercraft. Note the embossing on the black stripes.

Holly accented her foliage with Nuvo Drops which replicates the design in the berries on the paper – so fun!

The dies used are all listed and linked further down.

Holly created a lot of dimension, making it appear the butterfly is fluttering its wings.

What a lucky recipient to receive this card!

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