Celebrating your birthday with cats and butterflies

Penny Black celebrate card with cat by kamadesign

So many friends and family celebrating their birthday this and next month so time to make some birthday cards. Here is my latest one. The recipient's favorite color is orange and preferably with black or blue. I couldn't believe my luck when I found this patterned paper in my stash. The whole background is just from one sheet of patterned scrapbook paper. You gotta love those.

The image is from Penny Black colored with my promarkers. The text is a cut-out from a sheet of scrapbook paper. I added some stickles glitterglue to the letters for some extra sparkle and 3D glaze to the middle of the flowers. The bigger butterflies are shapeabilities dies from spellbinders and the small one a Martha Stewart punch.

And of course the inside has got to be as pretty as the outside:

When assembling my cards I always try different options. Here's a photo of the different layouts I played around with before deciding on the last one:

Crafty cardmakers - layer it up 
Creative inspirations - anything goes
Cute card thursday - animals/creatures
Everybody art - anything goes
Fab 'n' funky - fall colors
I love promarkers - spots and stripes (stripes under the sentiment and spots on the yellowish swirly pattern)
Moving along with the times - anything from the first verse of Dana's song "all kinds of everything" (I used butterfly)
Ooh la la - anything goes
Passion for promarkers - beautiful butterflies
Penny Black and more - sentiment
Penny Black saturday - nature
Penny's challenges - anything goes
Simon says stamp wednesday - stamp it
