Elegant Cake butterfly birthday card

Hello, friends!

I hope you are all having a great weekend so far. I have been busy, but very productive! My house is clean and my projects for Everyday Cricut are complete. I just need to edit the video...which I will be doing this morning. Now I just wish I had a relaxing day ahead of me, but sadly I have a birthday party for my nieces(they are not even twins, just born on the same day 3 years apart). You know the kind of party that starts early afternoon and doesn't end till it is bath time....*sigh* Good thing I love birthday cake!


Here is one of the cards that I made for the party. This one is Lexy's. She is turning three and loves butterflies!


The sentiment is cut using Elegant Cakes cartridge at 1 1/2". I love this font! I wish they would do an entire cartridge with it!


the butterfly is a sticker that came with the Basic Grey 'Urban Prairie' paper pack.


Updated to add: the flower on the inside of the card is also a sticker from the paper pack.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Have a fabulous Sunday!

Very pretty card! That is a great idea to have your babies on the same day of the year. One birthday party and you are done! LOL I'll bet the kids don't like it so much.
