Butterfly Brilliance - Birthday

Starting March 2nd through May 3rd 2021,  the Butterfly Brilliance Collection will be available.  It is a fabulous collection of stamps, dies and paper.  I was inspired by Su Mohr and her layout.  To make this card I used the following collection Cutting: Bermuda Bay cardstock 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2"  Natural Touch Specialty DSP 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Butterfly Bijou DSP  2" x 4 1/4".
