Butterfly Birthday Card for challenges

Here I am again, I am on a roll, I made a bunch of cards yesterday so will see how many I can post. I am enjoying the peace the card making is giving me at the moment....ahhh....
This is an image I found on Pinterest some time ago, sorry don't have the link, just saved the image...
I teamed it up with purple and the underlying colours in the background are that colour. The border punch is from Ek, it's one of those large ones, beautiful. Love it.The black butterfly is a SU punch and the lots of Glitter and jewels...

Embossed Dandelion card for Challenges

Hi all, hope you have been well.  As some of you are aware I had a bit of a health scare and I stepped down from pretty much everything last year, and just as well I did. I really needed time out. The cancer tumors are slowly but surely shrinking and the medication I am on is working well without many side effects. This is my second fight with cancer, and IT will not win....Amen.

So in the mean time I have cleaned up my card stashes, and multiple other stashes that I didn't even know I had (cough) found long lost treasures and gave a lot away,and re shushed my work area...So here I am ready to go again....

It feels good.

So I am gingerly poking my toe back in the water, lol...
Haven't done this for a while so be gentle...he, he....oh how I missed this..

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Creative Inspiration # 313 : Shabby Chic
The Crafters Cafe # 116: Feminine
Little Red Wagon # 289 : Make an impression
Jo's Scrap Shack #87: Anything goes
613 Avenue # 123: Anything goes
Glitter n Sparkle # 136: Embossing
Scribble and Scrap # 44: Anything goes
Creative Card Crew #87: Embossing
City Crafters # 261: Flowers

Recipe: Mostly from my stash, the butterfly on the top right is MS punch, the bottom left one is a SU punch., The background is an embossing folder with two Dandelions ( which I got from a bargain shop- has no brand name on it), which I liberally covered with glitter, not sure that  you can see it.

Hope you like it,
Blessings Hilde
