None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world.

Birthday Wishes ...

Good morning!
I hope everyone is doing great! Today I am sharing the card I made for this week's color challenge at The Outlawz. Ursula picked out the colors this week with an added twist of using a button. Something I didn't do because I have 50 gazillion buttons and none were the right color or size (sigh). 

Here is my 5 x 7 card

Cardstock from The Paper Studio
Cricut Die "Flower Vine"
Cuttlebug EF "Polka Dots"
Darice EF "Crackle"
Design Paper from Colorbok "Bright Splash"
Stampin Up! Die "Butterflies"
Stash: Silver Birthday Tag, Rhinestones
Yvonne Creations Die "Flowers"

Thanks for stopping by!

Got snow drifts? Think of all the magical snowmen buried beneath, waiting for release.
