happy b'day Joyce

I needed a card for this week for a coworker's birthday and tho' I have close to a gazillion on hand that I could choose from, I felt like putting one of the little butterflies I'd picked up during my last visit to Mike's to use. I seem drawn to CAS cards of late, and this one's no exception. I simply ran the white card stock thru my Cuttlebug using an embossing folder - clouds seemed appropriate here - and then popped up the butterfly onto a popped up matted piece. I have some sparkly ribbon that matched, but it seemed like a "less is more" card for today so I simply wrapped some twine around the bottom and applied the popped up matted piece on the base and voilĂ ! Easy peasy!

Here's a peek at the cloudy day embossed background:

stamps: Melissa J Designs' flower fusion #1, heart-2-heart #4; paper: Neenah Solar White, SU unknown card stocks; accessories: The Twinery's ocean baker's twine, Mike's butterflies
