Happy Birthday Judy !!!

Woohoo...it's Friday!!!!

A good friend has a birthday in a couple of days and ...she is a brilliant card maker. 
Do you feel funny about sending handmade cards to someone who also makes them? Does your family and friends refrain from getting you cards because you make them?  I love sending cards because no two are ever alike, and love getting them, because they give me new ideas (store bought or hand made).

I had to come up with something unique that I have never seen her do in her artwork.
So......How about a floating butterfly?

This card is made like a box so it folds flat for mailing, but when you push in the sides of the card, it turns back into a box shape....and it stands with no problems.

With a little magic from some acetate, you have a butterfly that appears to be floating inside the box.

Happy Birthday Judy!!!
Hope this is your best year ever!!!!
Sorry...couldn't help but use a Penny Black stamp on this card.
