A Simple Happy Birthday

I found this blog recently called
Watercooler Wednesday and they have a
CAS Butterfly Themed Challenge.
Now I, like most of you
I'm sure love butterflies and have a
mountain of them in our stash
so what better excuse is there to just get
one of those stamps out to play.
Details Here
I seem to be obsessed with backgrounds of late
and this is another one.
I have had a canvas paper pad for an age
and decided to try using it for my
watercolour background
using Tim Holtz Cracked Pistachio/Mermaid Lagoon
Peacock Feathers and Evergreen Bough.
Also added a bit more colours through
TH Speckles stencil. This was matted with the same
paper as my Happy Birthday from Spellbinders
attachedin a curved manner for effect.
The gorgeous butterfly is Gina K Designs
embossed in Teal.
I found it hard not to add some bling but
would not have been cas if I did.
Thanks for popping in.
I love reading your comments.
Till next time - Cherrio from

Just lovely, your background is perfect. I'm with you, my favorite is to watercolor a background. The only thing that would have made this better is if it was PURPLE!!! LOL!!! But this is just as gorgeous, especially with that stunning butterfly. Well done, I think it's glorious!!!

Ina, what a great background you've created for this CAS card. Love the butterfly, it looks like it's flying up through the forest to the sky. Thanks for joining in for our Watercooler Challenge this week, nice to have you on board.
