Sending...

...pink and gray, belated Birthday!  This card was sent to a dear friend, an inspiration, and definitely a happy uplifting person!  I wanted to use her favorite colors, and I also used a sketch challenge but I never seem to get them mailed and then posted before the challenge is over.  Oh well... I'm hoping she liked this, and REALLY hoping it extended her Birthday just a bit!

I know, I know not so fallish, but her personality just speaks sunny days and butterflies!  I made it into a shaker card as you can tell by the glare in the lower right corner, it's something I don't make much of but wanted to see those punched butterflies move around a bit.  The small butterflies were punched (actually leftovers from another), sponged and added into the shaker with a bit of white FlowerSoft. Another tidbit is that the vellum butterfly is actually a two-layer die that added just a bit airiness.

Well I'm hoping she has it by now and enjoying it.  Thanks everyone for giving me a bit of your time, and your oh-so-wonderful inspiration and encouragement.

Hugs,
TK
