CTD 311- Happy Birthday!!

Happy Hump Day!! I love Wednesdays....Barbara is bringing us the colors this week and they're sweet!!


Here's my card....
Playing with stencils on this one!! The butterflies were sponged using a Heidi Swapp stencil and then added some modeling paste using Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow stencil. Sentiment is from WPlus9's Strictly Sentiments 5. Added some sequins for a little bling.

Our Guest Designer this month... the wonderful Lise Henke from My Little Creative Escape!!
