First Birthday Card

Hello everyone!  I hope you're all having a great week!!  The weather has cooled down a bit here, so I'm thrilled about that - no more triple digit heat indexes!!

One of my sweetie's cousins recently celebrated her first birthday.  Her mom sent out the cutest invitations, which inspired me when I created her birthday card.

The invitations had a polka dot background and a couple of butterflies on it.  I'm not sharing the actual invitation because it also included a picture of the cute birthday girl and I wasn't sure how her mom felt about having her baby's picture shared on the internet.  I hope you all understand!!

The colors of the butterfly are similar to one of the butterflies on the invitation and I managed to find some polka dot paper with the same colors too.  I embossed the yellow layer of the wings and gave my butterfly a sweet Peachy Keen face.  A crinkle ribbon bow topped off with a twine bow and button finish off the card!  :-)

I also want  to remind everyone about a fantastic challenge coming up at Fantabulous Cricut on Monday.  We have a wonderful sponsor - Cricut Vinyl Supplies.

Cricut Vinyl Supplies is offering a 15% discount, on top of their already low prices, to help you prepare for the upcoming challenge.  Just use the discount code: fantabulous and stock up on some vinyl!  On top of that, if we get 100 entries to our vinyl challenge the week of September 9, Cricut Vinyl Supplies will be giving away a Cricut Expression!  How fantastic is that?!?
