House of Cards April Challenge Happy Birthday Butterflies Card and Another Birthday Card (Hero Arts Image)

Another month another new monthly challenge at House of Cards, this time the theme is : to add a butterfly and/or be inspired by these colors.

I used my old puncher to make my butterfly in red, blue and yellow. I was a bit confused with the dark color there at the color palette, is it dark blue or black also I choose both :) (grinz)

This card is combination of goodies from my lovely friends:

1. The scallop I have got from Billie A. in the USA, thanks Billie for sending me those lovely scrap goodies.

2. The Sentiment is from Dawn T. in New Zealand, dear Dawn again many many thanks for the lovely cut out you sent me :) you are always so kind to me Dawn :)

3. The White paper embossed is from Neva...dear Neva many thanks for those lovely cut out and the embossed papers.


I also put the edge sticker in silver, it is my old collection, I bought maybe at 2009 and never been used :)

I hope you like to join with us this month at House of Cards Challenge.
