Birthday card

I made a card for a friend's birthday, using card sketch #102 from Feeling Sketchy.  She's a no-fuss kind of lady, so I kept it simple:

(That's a block of Lindt chocolate peeking out from behind the card - which I enclosed with the card!) I used a handwritten sentiment, and the butterfly is partially fussy-cut from the journalling card, to make its wings stand out:

I'm entering my card at Clique Kits, where Anything Goes for their inaugural monthly challenge, and Butterfly Challenge, where the theme is butterflies in autumn colours.

12/10/2014 Edit to add: My card was selected in the Top Picks at Feeling Sketchy:

Thank you for visiting my blog!
