"Bit Box Birthday"

Good Monday Morning Blog friends.  Thank you for popping bye today, great to have you visit, I enjoy reading all your comments fairly keeps me wanting to craft.  
Have you noticed I now have 32 followers, soon be at 40.  I have a few nice bits for my First Blog Candy when it hits that number 40
Hope this will be the start of a great week for you all no matter what you do.

Apart from the base today`s card was made from my "Bit Box"  A quick card was needed to post in an envelope in the village post box.  Well!!! Blog friends as you know my "stock" cards definitely need a box to accommodate those "roses"! no rose but we do have a butterfly

Base card 5 x 7 approx
Spellbinder M-Bossed piece of card
Pink scalloped edged "waste" from cutting the Asian Accent Border
I just knew that would come in handy.......!!
Piece of white ribbon just enough to pleat
Backing paper left from a previous project
Butterfly and sentiment from scraps that luckily matched

I added some Cosmic Shimmer white Pearl drops on the centre of the flowers on the embossed piece, also on the i in Birthday and down the body of the butterfly.  There was not enough ribbon to tie a bow but I think the pleating works OK, a stamped Happy Birthday to complete

That`s it for today
Thank you so much for calling in it really is appreciated
