Pastel Birthday

Hello everyone! Hope you had a great Easter ... and perhaps (like me) you are continuing with the celebrations. Just a quick post from me today. I have a busy week ahead ... urgh. So I forced myself to sit down and make this card for a friend whose birthday is in a couple of days. I'm living on the edge these days... lol.

All stamps from Clearly Besotted.  I did the background on just one piece of  of white 
CS. The polka dots are from Background Builder, stamped with VersaColor Baby Blue. 
I also embossed the white space with the Cuttlebug's Swiss Dots  EF. 

I'm using Fabulous Fuchsias here: for the vine I used Memento Bamboo Leaves and
for the flowers, VersaColor Pink. The butterfly is from Butterfly Wishes stamped with
VersaColor Baby Blue.      

On the inside, more butterflies and a greeting from Fabulous Fuchsias.

Some challenges for this card:

Mojo Monday #342: Sketch
Clearly Besotted Challenge #10: Spring

Thanks for stopping by today and have a lovely evening.
I might go to bed early ... feeling totally exhausted ... sigh ...
