Sandra Caldwell Birthday Blog Hop

We are celebrating the very talented Sandra Caldwell's Birthday (which happens to be TODAY!)
with a birthday blog hop. Won't you please help us celebrate?!

We have each made a creation with images from her Etsy store.
If you arrived here from Cindy van Oorschot , YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE!

For my B-day card for Sandra, I used  the adorable image called Butterfly Costume 804 which I coloured with a mix of Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils and then fussy cut leaving a narrow white border. She was matted with black and popped up on foam tape for dimension.
A simple background of patterned paper overlaid with green and turquoise ribbons created a woodland feel. Three punched and layered butterflies with pearl bodies embellished the top right corner of the card and a die cut and matted sentiment was added to the top left corner. A large black threaded button and a black mat completed the card.

Here's a quick peek at the inside which was finished to complement the front design:

Sandra, the message is heartfelt! I thank you for your friendship, your inspiring designs, and the joy that both bring me. I hope you have the best birthday ever in the history of all birthdays :)

Thanks for stopping by everyone.
In case you get lost, here is your line-up.
So hop on over to Barb Poole and see her wonderful creation.
