Happy 2nd Birthday C.R.A.F.T. Challenge!

It is time to ....
PARTY and a hop hop hop !!!

And to help C.R.A.F.T. Challenge's celebrate their 2nd Birthday 
The Crafty Pad is throwing in some digital images for some pressies!

So here is a great chance to snag some Crafty Pad Images by playing along with 
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge this week in their 
Birthday theme challenge &  blog hop!

I have also been fortunate enough to party & GDT along with the talented ladies of 
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge this week using the gorgeous Butterfly Verse and borders set from 

This set would have to be just ADORABLE isn't it???
I have also used the Happy Birthday Ticket Sentiment also available 

I did not want to take the focus away from the sentiment and the butterflies with this card so I stuck to just one DP and the lace doily.  I gave all the pieces an antique aged look with ink distressing and to add that magical charm and sparkle I added some large silver glitter flecks around the sentiment. As no card is complete without some ribbon I wrapped some around opposite card corners with a lush bow and I just had to finish with some punched butterflies and the butterfly charm from my stash of new things this week!  I really do not know how I am going to part with this card; I have fallen in love with it so much lol! 

Thank you for dropping in on me,
and I hope you will join in the hop & fun this week with C.R.A.F.T. Challenge !
