Freshly Made Sketch ~ Happy 1st Birthday!

So much inspiration from yesterday SAB & Spring Catty Smackdown I just had to get down to my craft room this afternoon and try a few things out! There were so many fabulous presenters yesterday and sooooo many fantastic new projects I am going to try out but here is the first one...

I wanted to play along at Freshly Made Sketches this week and thought the sketch was perfect for a card with the belly band and it just so happens yesterday Carollee Cowan showed us a fabulous card which she found at, an easy box card! 

Carollee had some fantastic flowers and butterflies on her table as well and so I thought I would try out a new embellishment at add a butterfly from her design :)

My Challenge:

My Card:

Friends of ours have a little girl celebrating her 1st birthday next month (actually the very same day our son will be celebrating his 4th birthday!) and being that she is their second child and they already have sooo many toys and clothes and 1 year old's do not really open presents yet so we thought a gift card might be a good idea. I do not like to just give a gift card in a simple card because you want it to still be fun to open so this box card full of punched out butterflies will work perfectly I think!

Take the time to let your creativity bloom!
