Secret birthday wishes

This is a pocket card made with papers from a Cath Kidston stationery set. The main paper I used was double sided, so I cut and layered one side on top of the other from another sheet before matting on to an A5 patterned pink/red card blank.

This is for Southern girls 39: show me a secret - a pocket on the card with a Happy Birthday message inside.

The chipboard butterfly was rescued from a card received a long time ago. This is for:

Speedy fox and friends 97: recycle
Sugar creek hollow 1: trash to treasure
Stamp, scrap & doodle: use your stash (bought the papers a while ago and hadn't used any yet)
One stitch at a time 103: re-use or recycle
Scrap it girl March: go green & recycle
Stampin' sisters in Christ 129: things with wings
Crafts and me 74: things with wings
The pixie cottage 111: things with wings
Flutter by Wednesday 193: spring time + butterfly
Alphabet: B for busy bugs

This is also for:

Aud sentiments 49: happy birthday
Allways something creative 25: happy birthday
Pile it on 10: are we seeing spots or stripes or both?
Scrappy frogs: seeing spots
Crafty boots: glitter
Kaboodle 109: think spring - let's see some flowers
Whimsical Wednesday: going green - incorporate green
The pink elephant 138: let's see those layers
The paper shelter 54: anything goes
Paper crafting journey 4: anything goes
Papertake: anything goes
Creative Mondays (always crafting) 3: anything goes
