Butteflies and Blogs Blog Hop!

Happy Birthday, Laura!
Welcome to the Butterflies & Blogs Blog Hop hosted by Laura at Makin Pretty Things!
I so excited to participate in this hop....Laura has put together an amazing lineup of talented designers.
You should have arrived from Pam's blog , if you just stopped by to visit click here to start at the beginning.

As you can probably guess by the name of the hop, we all have butterflies in our projects.  This is great for me because I love butterflies. 
For my card, I used Birthday Bash for the card base.  I cut the base at 5.25"h.  The flower is from Walk in My Garden at 2.5 and the butterfly is from Straight from the Nest at 2.65.  The grid background paper and the glitter paper on the butterfly are both from DCWV. 
The sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms set - All in the Family.  I love this butterfly....so pretty!

I  made a little gift bag from coordinating DCWV paper.

I cut the bag from Once Upon a Princess.  I rotated it to the diagonal on my mat so I could cut it as large as possible....sorry, I forgot to write this down.   I cut the flower at 2.25 and the butterfly at 2.5.
 
I guess this gift bag would be for a tiny gift....maybe jewelry....or a gift card to your favorite craft store.
I have some BLOG CANDY!!!
Please make sure you're a follower and leave me a comment on this post for a chance to win a $10 gift card to either Michael's or Joann. 

Thanks so much for stopping by....your next stop is Paula!
