Happy Birthday

I made this card for my girlfriend's birthday, and since she's received it, I can now post it.


The card front is from a journaling notebook that I bought on clearance at Target. The journaling papers are from Colorbok, and I just love them. What a fantastic card front! I love the color scheme, the white graphics, and the butterflies! I just added a gorgeous Prima, and a stamped image from a Stampin' Up set. I cut the image using my Nestabilities. I added two glitter Making Memories brads, and all of the cardstock is chalk ink distressed.

I hope you all have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by!
