Birthday Calories Don't Count

At least in the crafting world!!  I made a card for Squigglefly's new weekly challenge, which was to create a birthday card.  SO easy, and if Gram lasts until another Christmas (she is, after all, 101 years old), my gift to her has been a set of birthday cards, in calendar order and identified on the envies, for each member of the family.
So I used Squigglefly's Birthday Cake Kaboodle by artist Diane Carubia digi image and whipped up a card on one of my busiest days at work. 
Not only is it second shift, with classes in session from 5-7 pm, but I have to give an internet and real world safety presentation tonight and tomorrow night.  I've got the Grade 4-6 presentation under my belt, but have yet to write out my lesson plan and choose my media for the 7th and 8th grade presentation.
A bit of Basic Grey paper for the base, some pink cardstock to frame my image and sentiment, and a pretty butterfly to embellish finishes off the card.
If you have a few moments to relax in your crafting area, grab a Squigglefly image and make a birthday card.  You could win a free digi this week!

Really sweet card Pat, and what an awesome gift to your Gram. I love the butterfly and the little flowers and brads by the sentiment are a wonderful touch! Good luck with your presentation.
