Butterfly Birthday

Hi Everyone.

Well, I made a card using the Freshlymadesketches sketch... and missed the deadline for submission!  However, I thought I would still share the card with you.

The sketch is a very different sketch and really pushed me out of my comfort zone.

Sendasmile4kids was looking for birthday cards and I made this card with them in mind.  I began with one of my remaining Altenew butterflies and took my color queues from there.
Here's my card:
Butterfly Birthday (1 of 1)
The fluttering by sentiment is from a Penny Black set called "Snippets" and I paired it with a Happy Birthday sentiment from Altenew.  I backed the focal layers onto a piece of grey card stock from Simon Says Stamp.
I hope you are all managing to stay warm.  We had our first day of -0 wind chills this morning!  It seems way too early for those :-)  I'll be back tomorrow with another card.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
Card recipe:
