"B" is for....

Birthday? Butterfly? Brad? Border? The list goes on...

My first card of the day is a Birthday card, and as it has been raining all day, I decided to use the colour challenge on Fab N Funky to cheer things up a bit, which was pink and lime green! I also used the sketch from this weeks Clean & Simple Challenge and it should also fit the Anything Goes Challenge, which was the letter "B".

Here's my card:

I used a white A6 card blank, and made a mask for the middle of the card, then sponged Peeled Paint Distress Ink all over the edges. I used a pink and a lime green paper from MME paper pack which came free with a card mag in the summer (think it was called Quite Contrary) to make the flower, and used a sequin and a brad in the centre. I think the green butterflies came from an embellishment assortment from one of these dodgy pound shops which sell mostly tat with the occasional bargain.
