CCNS01 - Blue Birthday Wishes

Howdy folks!  I hope you've had a wonderful week so far.  Tomorrow is Friday!  Yay!! 

This is the card I created for the very first CCNS Challenge.  The following products from the Classy Cards 'n Such store were used on this card:

This card also fits into these challenges:

Divas by Design #22 - Wings and Things
Flutterby Wednesday #190 - Anything with Wings
Inky Impressions Challenge - Punches or Dies
Pretty Little Ribbon Shop #7 - Anything Goes
Sparkles Challenge #29 - Things with Wings

Here's the directions on how I created my card: 
1.  Fold 8.5" by 5.5" navy cardstock in half to make card base.
2.  Cut blue floral paper from the Vintage Blue (Glitz) paper pack to 5.25" by 4".
3.  Cut white cardstock to 5-3/8" by 4-1/8".  Adhere blue floral paper to white cardstock.
4.  Wrap some White seam binding around the bottom part of the blue floral paper, tie with a small bow.
5.  Cut one Fanciful Flourish from white cardstock, adhere toward the bottom of the blue floral paper.
6.  Stamp "Birthday Wishes" sentiment from JustRite Birthday Sentiments set with navy ink on white cardstock.
7.  Cut sentiment out with a circle die (Spellbinders).  Sponge some navy ink around the edges (Wisped Frames technique from Technique Junkies).
8.  Cut navy scallop circle from navy cardstock with a scallop circle die (Spellbinders).
9.  Adhere sentiment circle to navy scallop circle.  Adhere to blue floral paper directly over the Fanciful Flourish.
10.  Cut a butterfly from white cardstock using an Exotic Butterfly Small die.
11.  Adhere to upper part of blue floral paper, apply some Star Dust Stickles to the wings, let it dry.
12.  Adhere the blue floral paper/white cardstock layer to the navy card base.
This is a fun and easy card to put together.  The only part that is hard is having enough patience to wait for the Stickles to dry on the butterfly.  :-) 

Be sure to check out the challenge that was posted on the Classy Cards blog on Friday, Feb. 10.  We'd love to see what you create!
