Happy Birthday Challenge

Today is my first entry into the new TOMIC-Magnolia Inspiration Challenge-website.  This weeks challenge is to create a Happy Birthday Project.  Yesterday I was playing around with Edwin catching butterflies-too cute!-and thought it would make a perfect birthday card.  Some of the elements in the design that I thought would put it together are my green bakers twine with the masculine brown button in the center.  Makes for a great item for your eye to travel to.  The next elements are the different contrasting paper designs that I stapled to the right side of the card.  I cut both of these using PTI dies.  I thing printed out my sentiment and also stapled that to the card using my Tim Holtz mini stapler.  I know, I am a gadget junkie lol.  Using design from both sides of your cardstock guarentees cohesiveness.  I hope you enjoy today's card!  Love, Elle
