Birthday Butterflies

The card that I have for today is one that I used for my stamp camp yesterday, the initial idea for this card was from Melissa Huie's beautiful card which you can see here.  Instead of using the stamp set Flight of the Butterfly like Melissa did I wanted to showcase a card using the new Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die which is currently in the Occasions Mini Catalog. 

Supplies: Well Scripted, Inspired by Nature, Flight of the Butterfly(for the small flower), Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die, Beautiful Butterflies Sizzix Die, Ribbon, Scallop Trim border punch, Linen Thread.  Colors: Soft Suede, Kraft, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Garden Green, Certainly Celery.

Loved this card...and saved it for a while 'till I had time to play. Funny how YOUR butterfly morphed into MY dragonfly! Thanks for the wonderful inspiration. Shannon http://thoroughlyimpressed.blogspot.com/2010/03/love-those-border-punches.html
