Birthday Sundaes Sping Birthday Callenge

Hello Everyone,
This week on Birthday Sundaes the challenge was to make a 'spring birthday card'. Nothing says spring more then bright colours and butterflies! Below is my inspiration for you! I did a different size then usual this week the actual card measures 5 3/4" x 4 3/4". The lighting in the picture makes it a little hard to see but I folded it so that there was 1" sticking out on the back of the card. Then I used some sheer ribbon that was the perfect size and ruffled it along the back of the front piece. (Does this make sense?) On the back piece I placed dark purple butterflies that I used a mini punch for. In real life you can see the butterflies through the sheer ribbon and it looks really neat! I think the second picture will help this make sense :)
Happy Crafting!

This is so cute Tara! I love what you did with that ribbon! It is a very nice touch!

I have to share...I heard someone say that everyone was happy at the show because the men could look at the cars and the women had lots of jewelry. It was a great combination for the guest. Good luck!
