The design team  decided to "Get Wordy" with this challenge-
use a sentiment on the front of the card.
And I think a birthday sentiment is the best type of all!

Here is my card:

I made this birthday card for my VERY special blog friend, Mona Pendleton. You must visit her blog "Cupcake's Creations" because she designs some of the most beautiful creations! She just finished a term as a design member for My Favorite Things, so you may have seen many of her creations for that company. She even designed some stamps, stencils and dies for My Favorite Things!

I started this card by using the Doily (Tim Holtz) stencil. I spread a thin layer of transparent embossing paste, and let it dry thoroughly. I then inked it with Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed, and Worn Lipstick Ranger Distress inks with my Mini Blending Tool. The embossed areas resists the ink!

On another piece of Neenah white card stock, I used the same stencil and only used Picked Raspberry distress ink.  I cut the butterflies out of this paper, using the Fancy Butterflies (My Favorite Things) dies. Then I inked the butterflies' edges with more Picked Raspberry Distress ink.
Next, I made some flowers with the Tattered Flower Garden (Tim Holtz) die. I used white card stock for these flowers and colored them with the Distress inks.
I made the banner, stamped the sentiment and added some buttons to complete the card!

Now don't forget to check out what my team mates have created!
They are a VERY talented crew!
