A Birthday card this time.

Hi again, we've certainly had a run of birthdays, weddings etc lately so today I made a card for one of our friends who turns 75 tomorrow. We have just come home from her celebratory dinner. A nice meal and caught up with some of her family. Her DIL is a girl I used to know when I was a teenager. Her family went to the same church as mine back then. Her sister Lynne and I were the same age and used to hang around at church events together.
Hubby and sons are home, they came back just before lunchtime today and were here when I got back from craft. I had little Isaac with me, he was still very sleepy after dropping off at craft in the pusher. One of hubby's ex work mates has come to visit from interstate and is staying with us for a couple of days. The bike trip went reasonably well with only one problem to one of the bikes on the way back. A coolant leak, and they had to end up getting some minor repairs to it done.
It's been a long day, so will get on and share the photo I hurriedly took of the finished card.

It hasn't come out as clear as I had hoped and I've already given her the card.

This is the inside taken flat on an angle.

This one of the inside  is taken more face on.
Blue card from stash
DP from Kaisercraft 6x6 Paper Pad ~ Utopia Collection
Sentiment stamp from Kanban stamp set - The Cavendish Ladies ~ Day at the Races
Butterfly stamp from Kaisercraft - I stamped directly onto card in black then did two blue images on white card and cut them out. One flat over the black one and then the next one put on with a couple of bits of foam in strategic spots to lift the sides of the wings.
Flourish is from the butterfly set above
SU Pacific Point inkpad
Alphabet die
