Happy Birthday, Darrin

35 years ago today, Darrin, my youngest son was born. I still can not believe that I am old enough to have children that old. But I am. Happy Birthday, Son, it has been an awesome journey.

Now to Pat's challenge for this week. (And let me verify, this is not my son's B/D card), It was white on white with just a touch of color. I saw, this butterfly lying on my desk (along with the kitchen sink *wink*) and thought, I need to incorporate that into this weeks challenge. I do not have a butterfly embossing folder, so I just turned over a sheet of patterned butterfly paper and what did I have, embossed butterfly paper and white at that. I just used the round scalloped nestability die cut to make the frame, and layered white on white. Then I attached the silver butterfly and the silver blings for my touch of color. You can not see in the picture, but I used the butterfly paper as the background where the silver butterfly had landed. Thanks for taking a peek today
