Happy Birthday, leaves and butterflies



So I'm feeling a bit under the weather and after a full day at work I came home to find my package full of mystery goodies from Leeann at Artful Delight.  Who doesn't love crafty goodies in their mail box?  So I rallied and made this birthday card.  I wanted to play along with the PTI Anniversary challenge "leaves and butterflies".  And then I figured I'd up cycle something and play along with the LESSology crew for their "Flights of Fantasy" challenge (I reused a take out coffee holder). 


Materials: PTI In Bloom leaves stamp and impression plate, WPlus9 Spring Post sentiment, PTI Happy Trails, Spellbinders Nestabilities Label, PTI Edgers #1 die, My Mind's Eye Rhinestones, Studio Calico butterfly stickers, May Arts ribbon, Coredinations card stock, PTI kraft card stock, canvas paper, Versafine black ink, take out coffee holder

Hope you're feeling better today! There's nothing like new goodies to help you perk up, though. Love that you reused a coffee holder to make this nature-inspired beauty!

Oh crafty goodies would help to make anyone feel better.
I love the way your up cycled the coffee holder. Wonderful idea.
Thanks for joining us at LESSology this week with your Flights of Fantasy.
