Birthday, Brads and a Butterfly

Hello and welcome to Shopping Our Stash's 490 post going "Back In Time" to challenge 49 and repeat it, Anything starting with a "B" so I went with Birthday and Brads and added a super cuter Butterfly to round the "B's" off. I shopped my stash as the brads are ones I got/bought when I was on the Eyelet Outlet Blog in 2017, The papers were all scraps, even the sentiment was one I stamped and set aside. 

As I said everything was a scrap, most was from a card I started and changed my mind. The HB die was cut 3 times, one in heavier cardstock, I added the b&w butterfly to tie in the black layer. All brads are from the Eyelet Outlet 

I added the birthday candle brad to the I in Birthday. Isn't that butterfly pretty.

Finished the inside with a favourite  sentiment and a scrap of patterned paper. 

As I set up to take the photo of my card Toto decided to have an afternoon bath on my chair, I almost sat on her she was so quiet. 

since I used snippits I'm adding this to:

Snippits Playground Challenge #447 ~~ 

Seize the Birthday ~~ Use Your Initials (BAG) went with just "B"

Thanks for looking today and I'm hoping to be back on the Holiday card making soon. Check out the inspiration the rest of the team has on the MAIN BLOG, then dig out your "B" items and add it to our gallery.
