Happy Birthday Hop for Jessica!

Hello again! This is my 3rd Paper Pretties post this week, can you believe it?? What a busy week we've had!! But we couldn't just not acknowledge our Prettie Girl Jessica's birthday now could we? No way!! Hopefully, you arrived here from Jessie's blog but if not you can start at Christie's blog so you don't miss any of the birthday goodness from the Prettie Girls!! :) If you get lost along the way or a link doesn't work, here's the list:

Jessica - the BIRTHDAY GIRL!

Since we all know that Jessica loves butterflies I wanted to incorporate at least one butterfly into my card . . . now is when I'd bought one of those nifty butterfly punches you all use so beautifully! I also remembered that most month's when we have our Prettie Release parties, Stamping In Your Jammies, it seems that Jessica is usually having Chinese food for supper - lol! So I took out my Flirty Fortunes set from Paper Pretties which I just love!! and got to work. (I had to use this pretty picture I took in my front window - my hydrangeas are bursting with big beautiful blooms and it makes me sooooo happy to see them!!)

Ok, the card, I stamped the take out box on dp and cut it out minus the handle. Then I used some wire I had to form a handle by wrapping it around my paper piercer which tapers on the end to get a nice spiral. The butterfly was stamped from the Flutter By Sophia image, colored, cut out and added to the take out box.

Your last stop on the hop is Jessica's blog - go and leave her some birthday love!! Have a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY Jess!! :)
