Butterfly Baby Welcome


Hi, I was asked to make a card for one of our teachers at work who has had a baby boy. 
I've used a similar design before but this time I used glitter paper for his name and vellum painted with twinkling H2Os as the base for the butterflies.

I'm going to link up to a few challenges.
At Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, the theme is Embossed. I've used the Cuttlebug Birds and Swirls embossing folder.

At Cuttlebug Mania the theme is Back to Nature with birds and bees and flowers or trees.

At Allsorts Challenge the theme is to add butterflies to your project.

At Make It Monday the theme is Anything Goes and to share creativity.

Materials used: Birds & Swirls embossing folder; Memory Box butterfly and Parker alphabet dies; EK Success flower punch; vellum; Twinkling H2Os; cardstock & bling from stash.

Thanks for visiting :)

Delicate & lovely. Perfect for a new baby boy. Those vellum butterflies are gorgeous. I've been eyeing that Parker die set too. Wonderful use of it on this card. Loved the EF that you used for the clean white background. TFS & hugs
