Birthday Blessings

Hi friends!  I've been waiting for July to get here for so long thinking this would be the time things would finally slow down.  Instead my life seems to have shifted into turbo speed and there are so many things to be done!  In addition to twins, Verve, Mojo Monday and life in general, I seem to have a plethora of friends young and old with birthdays in July (mine included!)  So you'll probably be seeing quite a few birthday cards here in the next little while.  This one I'm linking up to Stacey's Birthday Linky Party.  She's got some sweet prizes she's giving away for participating, including some Verve!

This card pairs So Fluttery with On Occasion (which is 20% off at Verve right now, plus there's the 300MOJO discount code that will get you an extra 20% off your entire purchase.  Quite a steal of a deal, if I do say so myself!)

The butterflies from So Fluttery are stamped in Blushing Bride, then I stamped the sentiment from On Occasion in black over that. Next I added some Stickles coated lace over a double bow using seam binding from the Truly Madly Deeply collection.  I finished off with a wood veneer butterfly that I covered in coordinating paper and then added stickles and pearls for shine.   A few little pink pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty accent each corner of my sentiment panel.  Pizzazz Aplenty is having a great little Buy One Get One Free sale on pearls and rhinestones right now, so you might want to hop over and take a look!  {wink}
