Butterfly from Sandra's treasure box

Hello, you lovely people out there,

Thanks for your lovely comments on my last card and the warm welcome back. Sure I am happy to be back in my haven!

Here is a quick card I made on Saturday as Zeenya (my older one) had to attend a birthday party and we had like ten minutes to get a card ready.
I have used navy blue card stock as the base and the butterfly is from Sandra's lovely treasure box... you cannot imagine how much that pretty treasure box could house all the way from the UK!!!

Sorry, the sentiment is not very clear in the picture - it says Happy Birthday.

The blue paper that you see is handmade from India.

The ribbon is from my stash - my ribbon drawer is in urgent need of organization. I try to do clean it every few months but it lands up looking messier than ever before. Lol!

Zeenya actually liked it without being critical and I was happy not to over do my fingers...

I am going to enter this for Less is More - the theme of which is butterflies this week.



PS: By the way, the world did not end yesterday???
