Sending Birthday Wishes

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today.

September is already on a roll, and I have been really busy in the kitchen with the bountiful harvest my hubby is getting from his vegetable gardens. We are going to buy a chest freezer to hold everything that I am freezing -  from roasted tomatoes, stuffed banana pepper, green beans, sugar snap peas and zucchini bread. We ran out of room in our kitchen refrigerator freezer. But we will have plenty of food for this winter to enjoy. 

Now onto my card for today. This one I created for the color challenge #963 on Splitcoaststampers. Our color trio was highland heather, parakeet party and daffodil delight for her color trio. Optional was to make it a birthday card.

CottageCutz recently released dies in the Folk Art style. I decided to use the Folk Art Butterfly die and create a birthday card.

This particular style is not in my comfort zone. So, I looked to Pinterest and I found this Folk Art butterfly art print, and I used it as my card inspiration.

My butterfly is cut in daffodil delight and the other elements that makes this folk art design are cut in highland heather and parakeet party.

My gray granite (neutral) background paper is from the Stampin' Up "bloom where you are planted" collection.

That's it for me for this post. So until next time......God bless.
