time to celebrate!

 This is post 2 of 2 for me today...click HERE for my Chickaniddy Crafts project.



Hello, post number two for me today.  Evidently I thought today was the 25th when I was scheduling my blog posts earlier this week...more on that in a bit.

I generally don't like to post multiple times in one day but I was so inspired by a couple challenges AND I needed a birthday card for someone at work.


This card kind of took a life of its own.  I'm super happy to have used a highly neglect A Muse wood mount butterfly image that I've had for years...the '14' is from Avocado Arts Days & Months set.


I used bits & bobs from a couple collections including:

MME Market Street
Freckled Fawn
Studio Calico
Jillibean

I was inspired by the current



Obviously, the overall design of my card was inspired by Wida.   I was also inspired by:

arrow (freckled fawn glittery arrow)
butterfly (a muse butterfly)
gold (embossing & confetti)
word strips (Jillibean & mme)
splatters (confetti)

I was also inspired by



I was inspired by:

pegboard (swiss dot embossed panel)
wood desk top (cherry wood veneer strip)
graphic print (butterfly embellishment)

So I accidently scheduled my PTI blog hop post for today...wrong day!

I'm sharing it since I'm inspired to created something else for tomorrow!




Thanks for stoppin' by!
