Sandra's Butterfly Birthday Hop

Welcome fellow hoppers to Sandra's Birthday Hop. We are celebrating the end of her 20s :) with lots and lots of beautiful butterflies.  We have a great grand prize (a Joann's $20 gift card and a set of Scrappy Mom's Stamps) so make sure to leave that bloggy love on all stops to be eligible. Please note that the hop will end at Sandra's facebook page.
Happy Birthday Sandra!!! I hope you have a great day girl and you get all that you wish for and more. Sending you a Huge birthday hug and thanks for inviting me to be part of your special day/hop.


OK, you should be hoping over from: Liz from Liz's Paper Loft. If not make sure to start at the beginning with our lovely birthday gal.

For Sandra's card, I used one of her fave colors, PINK, although it may be more mine than hers (lol). I colored up my cute little Dahlia (from The Greeting Farm) b/w with pink hair because it's hair color I'm secretly hoping I can have. So technically I'm living through her. Lol! I was going to play it safe and color her up normal with brown hair, hehe, but I went against that and decided to give it my flair. It wouldn't be me if she didn't have a crazy hair color. lol. I used my Prismacolor pencils for my coloring. I hope you enjoyed my card.

Your next stop is the uber talented scrapbook gal: Lauren from Lauren's Creative

Thanks for stopping by!

I will be playing with My Craft Spot - Emboss It
I embossed the sentiment and those funky little butterflies.
Note: MS Embossing powder is a bit crappy (lol) as you can see.
