Happy Birthday Challenge At Fussy and Fancy

Here we are again with a new challenge at
with Sasha being our hostess and she has chosen the theme
'Happy Birthday'!

Our sponsor is Live & Love Crafts.
Check out their site as they have some lovely papers and such!!

I have a gorgeous yellow card I created which entirely came from
my scrap bags of pre-cut dies and scrap papers.

I used a yellow card stock for my background then topped
with a Heartfelt die cut a friend had cut for me,
so am not sure the name of the die, but I love how delicate it is!

The die actually has a cut out circle in it, but I cut a Spellbinders
circle in white to place over that, then added the happy birthday on top.

The flowers, stems (Poppystamps) and such all came from the scrap bags,
I keep all these kind of things in clear bags, sorted by color.

The butterfly is a crochet one that I added to a plain butterfly die,
it comes with sticky stuff on the bottom, which means it would of
laid flat on my card and I wanted it more 3D.
It is a Martha Stewart butterfly that I got on clearance at Michael's
awhile I wish I had picked up a few more packages of these!

Being my Mom's birthday is May 6th and yellow happens to be her 
favorite color, I think this card will be hers!!

Now pop on over to the Fussy and Fancy blog to see what my fellow
teamies have created, and join in with is
 an 'easy' challenge!!

(Just wanted to mention that I will be off my blog
until the 10th, so will be visiting your blogs once I get back  and to wish all the Moms a very Happy Mothers Day!)

So beautiful Diane! You are so good with these yellow creations (another one for mom?) Love the flowers and that beautiful butterfly! Great job as always ... thanks for inspiration!

Diane, I am in love with this creation! The colors are so upbeat. NEVER would I have considered using the lacy, crocheted texture like you did this butterfly! FABULOUS design idea! (I have that MS Butterfly punch, too, and use it rather frequently). The layers on this card work beautifully. I also own the HC background die and HAVE NOT USED IT YET (hanging head in shame). Thank you for the design idea! Cutting the flowers and stems with designer papers is another great idea to add texture - I never think of doing that! YIKES! where is my brain? LOL Thank you for the inspiration this morning - of course you are pinned! love, de
