Firefly Congratulations

Happy Sunday!  I hope you are having a good weekend.  I took tomorrow off from work for my birthday, so I get to enjoy an extra long weekend.  We will be going to my favorite smorgasbord to celebrate tomorrow.  Tonight, we are having a small family celebration with cake and ice cream.

My card today was made with 6 x 6 paper from Prima's Firefly collection.  I love the watercolor like palette of these papers.

This card is very simple and came together quickly.  I tried my hand for the first time at using the resist canvas label from Recollections.  I spritzed it with Recollections sprays in pink and purple.  I didn't quite achieve the color variation I was looking to do.  The sentiment was stamped in Archival Ink from Ranger.  The flowers, I believe, are Prima.  The butterflies were made from the same paper using a Martha Stewart punch and highlighted with rhinestones also from Recollections.  The crochet lace is from Joann's.

Well, that's it for today.  Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and for the sweet comments you leave.  I wish a wonderful week ahead for everyone!
