Birthday Butterfly

I've been away from the craft desk for awhile--busy enjoying the exceptional weather we've been having. Yesterday was a record breaking 86 degrees!  Hubby and I had dinner outside at one of our favorite places on the revitalized Market Square downtown. It was great to see so many people enjoying the wonderful weather--parents strolling with their children, people walking their dogs, musicians playing and singing, people lining up for a concert next door to the restaurant. One more hot day is predicted and then back to the 50's for a few days--a good time to accomplish some those neglected household tasks or go blog hopping :)

Of course, I haven't completely neglected the craft desk. I made a card for these two challenges:
*Embellish Magazine challenge
*CPS sketch #161.

1. Cut card base from kraft cs.
2. Cut pink patterned paper.Round corners. Adhere.
