Birthday Butterflies

This is another card I made for a coworker for their birthday. This was a sketch I found on Pinterest. I have many sketches saved there, but have only used a few.
The original sketch can be found here.

I used all papers from my scrap stash. The butterflies are stickers from a set from Jenni Bowlin. This is the set of butterflies:

I found them on clearance at one of my local craft stores, but can be purchased here.
I can't remember which set the sentiment stamp came from. I believe it was from a Close to my Heart set.

This is another sketch that is very versatile and can be used for any occasion. The butterflies could easily be exchanged for hearts, starts, snowflakes, other animals, flowers, leaves, etc.

Birthday Card inspired from Pinterest

I found this card layout on Pinterest. The original post can be found here.
I love borrowing ideas from others and found this to be a very versatile layout. It was a bit tedious to make, but well worth it. I cut each square at one inch, but I could have easily done 1.5 inch. This was a great way to use up scraps of paper I had. I even borrowed from my friend's scrap paper bin too!
This was made for a coworker on my team. 

I cut enough to make two cards like this. The other pieces have not been assembled into a card yet, but it will be added to my stash once completed. Does anyone else do that? I have started making multiple cards at one time, but I will finish one card needed for a specific occasion, prep the pieces I need for a few more cards, and then leave them in a pile to put together at a later time. I have them neatly in plastic containers, but now I just need to pull them out and assemble the cards.

This card will definitely be recreated.
