Butterflies for a baby boy


Hi, I made this card to send to my niece in Austria who has recently had a baby boy.
This embossing folder reminds me of a babies quilt, so I think it's the perfect background for these butterflies.

I'm linking up the the challenge at The Card Concept where the theme is baby.
There's also a fabulous photo for inspiration.
I think my card is in the clean and simple category.

I'm also putting a second entry in at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
where it's an anything goes theme, and at 
Addicted to Stamps & More where it';s also anything goes.

Inkspirational has a colour challenge

Materials used:
Stampin Up fancy fan embossing folder; Memory Box butterfly and alphabet dies; EK Success flower punch; glitter paper.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x
