Here is my MMTPT190, better late than never - too late for comments, but wanted to send this off to give Joan something to smile about for her birthday! HERE is her story Jpan is fellow teapotter, Emily's, Mom and is getting ready to celebrate a birthday, so we are sending her butterflies - and lots of them! She has been having a tough time of late healthwise and does not get out much - Emily would love for her Mom to move up near her!
I also followed the color challenge for today - Choc chip, Baja Breeze and River Rock, with white as my neutral - sorry, though, no dessert! Punched out my flowers, die cut the sizzix branch with leaves, and added rick rack to the card. Stickles were put in the flower centers, and glitter pen was added to the marker colored butterflies. The DP with the white on it was a gift! Thanks, Pat!
Hope Joan is happy to see all the cards coming to celebrate with her this week. Thanks for looking!

Hey, Sue, one day late is no way late, please don't say that or there's no hope for me these days :D. Amazing DP - it looks like frost crystals or something, and I think it works wonderfully as a background for your pretty butterflies.

Wow, gorgeous, Sue - the dp reminds me of white dandelion fluff floating in the air - you've used these colors in the most beautiful way - love the sparkle on the butterflies and the twin rows of ric rac!
