Fly away on your birthday!

Hello, friends! I hope your weekend is going well. It is just rainy rainy rainy here. It is ok though because my yard and flowers totally needed it.

Today's card is made exclusively with Papertrey Ink items. I used a Papertrey Ink die and butterfly stamp set. You just can't go wrong with Papertrey Ink!


Have a good rest of your Sunday! I am going to take the day to relax because I have a crazy busy blog week ahead of me. A blogger's work is never done!
