Happy Birthday

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion 
Hi Everyone! 
I hope you are having a fantastic week so far! Can you believe it's Friday tomorrow? Ofta, where has the week gone! It has been beautiful this week~in the 40's and hoping to hit 50's by the weekend, yeah!  I am so ready for spring :)

I have a cute birthday card to share today using some fun product I picked up from
Simon Says Stamps.  I really had a lot of fun with some of these products~Thanks to my blogger friends, Mona from Cupcake Creations and Lisa from A Mermaids Crafts who have inspired me to give this a try. Be sure to check out their blogs for inspiration......they are AMAZING!  
I started with a white card base. The base layer is pattern paper from My Mind's Eye and I have distressed the edges with the DIA. The yellow panel was cut and using a fun Stencil~Balloon & Patterns from Simon Says Stamps along with Texture Paste created a textured background. Once it dried, I added some color using TH Walnut Distressed Paint and then finished with Ranger Perfect Pearl Mist for a shimmery look over the whole panel.
The beautiful butterfly is SU Butterflies Thinlit's Dies which I have used foam dimensions for additional dimension. I embossed the sentiment from My Creative Time's Card Sentiments stamp set with Sweet Stamps Pearl embossing powder. I also added some cute little enamel dots that were in my stash. I finished with a decorative border using a punch from Recollections and tied on a pretty bow with 3 Girl JAM crinkle ribbon.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Simon Says Wednesday Challenge~Things that Fly
2.) 3 Girl JAM Challenge Mar~Anything Goes w/ribbon
3.) Paper Issues Challenge~Enamored with Enamel
4.) DL.ART Thankful Thursday #152~Anything Goes
