Loonie Stampers Celebrate Dee's Birthday!

This week's Loonie Stampers Challenge is a surprise for Dee's birthday. She didn't know that we all made birthday cards for her...how fun! So, I hope you have a wonderful day today Dee!!!

My card is designed from a TV commercial I've seen a few times. I totally can't remember what the commercial is for, but part of it has a family sitting in front of a purple wall with huge purple and white butterflies all over it. Every time I see it I think, "That would make a great card" so I finally did it. I have to say the wall looked better than my card turned out unfortunately. I guess you never know until you try!

My card base is Close To My Heart's Hydrangea cardstock and I punched out butterlfies using two different Martha Stewart punches. I used Hydrangea, Amethyst, and White Daisy for the butterflies and added some Crystal Stickles to the center of each. I adhered them and embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. It's a pretty simple card but for some reason it took me forever. I guess it's because I just couldn't get it looking the way I wanted to so I finally gave up. Still, I love purple and butteflies so what could be better!

Happy Birthday Dee!!! I hope you were surprised. Check out the other Loonie Girls for their cards this week too:
