Butterfly Birthday (Weekly Deals)

Well, hello there! Glad to see you all here again. It's been awhile...

Woo hoo ~ card night is back!! We started up my monthly card making nights again. I always take a summer break and then roll right back into it when September comes around. Although I kind of had forgotten how much work it takes to put these card nights together. It was a busy day yesterday to pull it off...even though it came down to the wire I was able to make it happen! This year the theme is "Chocolate & Cards" and every month I plan to make a fun chocolate-y dessert for everyone to enjoy! Last night was Zucchini Brownies.

Today I am sharing one of the cards we created last night, which also showcases two of the Weekly Deals this week! (See below for more information on those deals!)

This card had a few extra steps, but with my card nights I like to create cards that are challenging, moderately easy, and then quick to put together. I was excited to add some gold accents to the card because I often will choose silver over gold. I added a button, cording and the strip of foil. I love the colors of Calypso Coral, Garden Green, and Gold paired with the softer neutral Very Vanilla. Adding large polka dots to the background just helped make the card pop a little more!
