Wasn't it nice of this butterfly to spread his wings for a photo?
The butterflies certainly are enjoying my zinnias this year.

That's where I got the color combo for my Monday Mojo card below.
And I think the sketch at Mojo Monday is also a beauty today.
I did turn it around a bit so you could read the words on the little banners, pieces of an old report card. I thought it appropriate for a wonderful young teacher who is having a birthday at the end of the month.
I wish I had embossed the 'Happy Birthday' so it popped a bit more. Maybe I'll be brave and go back and do that. Best put my glasses on first!
And now that I look at it, I might add a swirl of black gems, too.
Am I the only one who does that - post a card, and then go back and change it up???
I'm entering this in:
A Gem of a Challenge #93 - Punch It Out (I punched it out all right! I used a McGill punch for the patterned aqua circle and had to push so hard I put the heel of my hand right through the plastic on the top of the punch. Not such a good thing.)
Totally Gorjuss Challenge #197 - Die Cuts and Punches
Kitty Bee Designs Aloha Friday Challenge #6 - Birthday
As You Like It Challenge #8 - Favorite Ribbon or Twine and why (I love the sheer ribbons. They make a great bow and are light and feminine.)
Crafty Ribbons Challenge #57 - 3 of something (flowers, brads, banners)
Have a wonderful day crafting away!
