Citrus-y Birthday Wishes

Another birthday card for a friend. I can’t say who, because it may not have arrived yet:)

I got a new stack of paper at Michael’s and was eager to use it. It’s by Die Cuts With a View and it’s called “Citrus.” The flower layer is from this pad, and so is the yellow strip. I embossed the yellow strip with a Cuttlebug border folder. The white is embossed with a Fiskars texture plate called “Leaves.” The sentiment is from a Stampin’ Up! set called All Occasions. I embossed around it with a Nestability, and matted it with the same yellow. The butterfly I received from a friend. I just realized this is very much a “card parts” card – the leaves were already embossed, the sentiment was already stamped and embossed, and the butterfly came to me already stamped on vellum and cut out. How could it possibly have taken as long as it did??? LOL!

Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!

Oh, is this BEAUTIFUL! What a gorgeous card - it's so nice to see such bright, cheerful colors after we've all had a long winter! Everything about it is perfect -- beautiful job! And I always wonder why everything takes me so long to do, too!
