Birthday Card

This birthday card is totally inspired by Linda.  When I saw her card I knew I would make one sooner or later but never thought it would be so soon.  When I saw the colors from ColourQ,  immediately I thought of Linda's card.  I cut an hexagon shape and using the negative, I stamped the background.  Used markers to color the flower and stamped a second one on Vellum for the butterfly.  I distressed the edges and the paper to make it look a little old.  Enjoy!
