Birthday Card Using Ching-Chou Kuik "Love Is In The Air" digi

Hello friends.  I have been on vacation to visit my family in MO.  My daughter is moving to Florida in a few weeks; so we wanted to see her, her family and other relatives before she moves.  We missed out on meeting up with several family members our first two days; as they couldn't get out of their roads; due the floods. There were many road closures; including a major Interstate were closed.   It was a mess; and we were in the middle of it at Branson, MO.  

I was also very disappointed that  I wasn't able to see my good friend Betty from Arkansas. We usually meet every year when we vacation in MO.  The restaurant we usually meet at was closed; as it sits right on Lake Taneycomo in Branson and it was not reachable except by boat.  

I decided to use Ching-Chou Kuik "Love Is In The Air" for my granddaughter, Gabrielle's birthday.  She turned 21 yrs old just before our April vacation.  I just realized this as I am typing my post. I probably should have made it a special 21st birthday card; but I think she will still love it.  We just found out before vacation that she is pregnant with her second baby, due in November.  Her little boy, Bryr, just turned one year old in April. He is just adorable.  

Please join our Ching-Chou Kuik Challenge - Lace & Ribbon Challenge.  I can't wait to see what you create.  It is such a fun challenge.   

I had to use a piece of Raspberry cardstock behind my card; so the white butterflies would show up.  LOL!  It is not part of the card.  This weeks Inspiration post theme is "Your Favorite Color".  Mine is purple, with pink and yellow as the next two favorites.
