Another big birthday

My mother in law celebrated her 80th birthday last week, I didn't want to go the obviousl route and have a huge 80 on her card. So I decided to go with an idea I got from a card I saw on Pinterest. Here's the one I CASE'd 
And here's my take on it...
 Hero Arts/Sizzix Antique Flowers and Butterflies set - coloured with Distress Markers
Hero Arts greeting
white cardstock from The Papeterie, Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Squares dies, Kaisercraft Timeless papers
I'd like to enter this into:
Cas-ual Fridays - things you see in the sky
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards - rainbows and butterflies
Cute Card Thursday - CAS
Paper Crafting Journey - anything goes
Paper Play Challenge - layers
Penny's Challenges - butterflies/bows
Scrapbook Sisters - things with wings
Crazy Amigo Challenge - dies & punches
Die Cuttin Divas - anything goes


Sorry my posts aren't very chatty at the moment - am having to type them at stupid o'clock, and schedule them as I'm not getting the time during the day with the kids :S

Striking & very apt for the 80th. Love the bright colours of the butterfly against the soft muted background. Don't worry about chatting - you give much. Just take care of yourself & the kids.
