Happy Birthday Lucia - June Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Hi there! I wanted to join the Papertrey Ink June Blog Hop today. I was in such a rush earlier that I had to photograph my card on the dashboard of the card while we drove to drop off the Little Guy at a party and meet up with Lucia. The card was inspired by this beautiful image. I loved the stripes of color and choose to use that as my main inspiration.

I made this card for Lucia, one of my favorite people. Her birthday is today. She is my husband's first cousin, but I love her like a sister. Such a sweetie!

I used the Birthday Bash Sentiments stamp set for the sentiment and the butterfly image comes from the Butterfly Wishes 
stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great one.

I'm sure Lucia is going to love this! And how are you, my friend? Will you be attending CHA this year? It will be too far away from home for me. :-( I hope you are having a great summer! Hugs from Copenhagen!

Fun and cheery! Love how the stitches and butterfly break up the straight lines. Great job on the challenge, Anthonette :)

I love this!! We had very similar thought processes on the background but I like yours a lot better! I love the doodly lines around the edges. And Birthday Bash is very high on my wish list (I need a birthday sentiment set).
