Birthday Wishes

It was nice and warm here Tuesday afternoon.....
but its not to last.....
I spent the day sorting thru things to donate to the Goodwill...
it's that time of the year to clean out....
but somehow I just manage to bring new in...
 
so after my hard days work and making dinner....
I was able to spend a little time in my creative room....
I made this card for a few different challenges.....
 
first for City Crafter, as it is their 3rd "birthday".....
I have been doing their challenges for awhile now....
and won a few times.....I will be guest designing there on May 7th.....
it's one of the challenges I try to do weekly, as it is always so fun....
and also I came across a "new" just starting challenge called
they give you a sketch, and an inspiration photo....
you can do  one, or both, or "fuse" the two together on one card....
that is what I did.....
and also a "new to me" challenge at Flutterby Wednesdays
to use a butterfly or fairy...

 
I made my felt flowers from a Memory Box die...
the leaves are from Memory Box as well...aren't they just the cutest???
The butterfly is a MS punch...the sentiment is from Hero Arts
and the "chevron" embossing is from Sizzix!!!!
