SPRINGTIME BIRTHDAY

I have made a card that I would like to enter into a few challenges:
For my card I have used a 7" x 7" white pearl card base the papers are Bearly Mine, I found them in a box of papers and thought they suited this image, called Happy Days from Di's Digi shop, perfectly.  I used my EK Success circle cutter for the semi circle at the top and did a bit of faux stitching. 
I added some adhesive wavy border then punched out some butterflies in alternating colours topped with Cosmic Shimmer pink PVA glue, I added the sentiment using my MCS programme before printing off the image which I coloured with Graph It Markers.
Once again I have to apologise for my lack of blogging, unfortunately I find myself in a position where I have to sell my house within the next several months.
There is such a lot to do as most of my stuff will have to go into storage that includes most of my craft stuff, I have made several cards that I have in reserve so that I may show you and enter into some challenges. 
I will be visiting all my lovely regulars who have left me such wonderful comments so once again may I ask that you bear with me.
