World Cardmaking Day!

Well there is a holiday for everything! My daughter has a birthday party this afternoon, and she decided she just wanted to give her friend money for her birthday. So I decided to make a fancy card for her and also to celebrate World Card Making Day!

For this card, I used the Cardpatterns sketch for inspiration:

I just loved that butterfly card from yesterday so much, that I decided to use butterflies again. But this time, I used all shades of blue because that is the birthday girl's favorite color:

This is actually a very simple card. The butterflies were cut from Cricut Stamping Solutions. I printed the sentiment on my computer using the Cheri Liney font. And the swirl stamps came from a set of stamps I got on clearance, not sure of the brand. Here are some more close-up pictures:

I used clear gems on the butterflies and also on the swirls. Every girl needs a little bling!

I decorated the inside as well. On the left side, I added a pocket for the money.

Thanks so much for Looking!
