Happy Birthday Butterflies

Happy Monday, everyone! My DH surprised me to a dinner at Olive Garden for my birthday. Most of my family were there too. I love their food but we had to wait for 2 hours. It wasn't nice when you have 22 starving people waiting to be seated. My sisters went early at 4:30 and waited. We didn't get seated until around 6:30pm or so. Crazy isn't it? Anyway, DH also bought a beautiful bouquet of red roses, a top and a bag of Heckery Sticks Chips. It is my favourite chip. I guess that makes up for the wait at the restaurant.

Well anyway, onto the card. Here is my Kraft creation, again! I use the new Beautiful Wings Embosslits from the Occasions Mini. Love this die! I love the many shapes of butterflies and its versatility. Now I can use up the scraps of cardstock and DP I've been saving up. I stick the butterflies down with mini glue dots and bend the wings to make them stand up.

ETA: Thought I show you the roses I received from my family. Isn't it beautiful? The other flowers are the ones still alive from a customer of mine. She is so sweet! She gave me a bouquet of flowers just because she wants to. I took a picture of it to show you all when there were more flowers but couldn't find which memory card it was in and never thought of taking it again.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day!

Happy Stamping!
