Green butterfly tag


This is the card I gave to my hubby for his birthday today. 
He loves gardening and wildlife, so I thought I'd use blues and greens to keep the card a bit more masculine looking.

I'm linking up to the challenges at Simon Says Stamp Monday where the theme is just a hint of clover. I've used green twinkling H2O's and distress inks.

At Virginia's View Challenge the theme is all things embossed. Congratulations once again on your first anniversary Virginia!
I've dry embossed my kraft card and brushed distress ink over it to bring out the pattern.
March Challenge: All Things Embossed

At Just us Girls the theme is masculine. I've kept my colour scheme to earthy tones to keep my card masculine looking.

At Seize the Birthday it's an optional toppings theme of masculine.


At Allsorts Spring is in the air.

This is a wonderful card for your husband Cathy, and the colours are great. I love that EF which is one I have and use a lot and the butterfly and flowery branches on the tag topper are just lovely. x
