A Birthday Card

Good morning and happy Tuesday, we've woken up to lots of snow today, it's so pretty, but I won't be happy till all my chickens are back home again safe and sound and off the roads.
I'm in full card making flow at the moment as we are entering birthday/anniversary season,  and wanted to try something a little different (for me), so here's a Z card.

There's a little bit of measuring involved in this one, but not too much thank goodness.

This is how it all looks when it's laying down. I've used the Apple Blossom All Occasion Butterflies and Flourish embossing folder, and some Tim Holtz Distress Inks. The Happy Birthday is from the Apple Blossom Everyday Sentiments set.

To finish I've used my favourite Tim Detailed Butterflies dies, and lots of DI's and paint. In the end I only used two 'cos when the card was folded there was serious wing crush, and we can't have that!

I'm entering this into the Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes With Dies and the HLS Mixed Media Butterflies challenges. 

Have a very happy day, try and keep warm, and thanks very much for looking xx
