Butterflies and birthdays....

This is a challenge card - Little Paper Shop #89: Colour challenge - blue, chocolate and yellow

The flower/butterfly are from Prima flowers, the background has been embossed using the bug, and the swirl was made with Gold Liquid Pearls and some brown and cream pearls.  The backing card is brown and the flag with the sentiment - stamped with gold ink and embossed, using a sentiment from WMS Basket Additions. Yes, it is sewed around the edges  - spent several fraught minutes wrestling with my little Elna sewing machine to get it to work, and then to actually sew around the card - so please excuse the poor effort there. The whole lot is attached to a piece of yellow bazzil card. 

That's it folks - DH had given me a G and T, and I can hear the dinner being prepared upstairs, so had better stop and go and be sociable.  Isn't he a gem!!
