Birthday Card Using Art By Miran Haylee

Hi friends.  How is everyone doing?  I hope you are having a fabulous summer.   It has been a busy couple months.  I won a Guest Designer Position with Art By Miran for June 18th.  I am so excited and happy to create with these digis.  They are fabulous!   I own a lot of them; but I find there are always more that I don't have.  This one is fairly new; so I was very happy to be able to use it for this GDT.

I was having a little trouble with my Creative Mojo; but maybe I found it again.  It turned out pretty good.  I didn't want to add too much to it; so you could see the gorgeous paper.  I used it inside as well.  I tried the butterfly two different ways and like the outside butterfly best.  The glitter for the inside one covered up the color too much.

I am entering this card in the Path of Positivity.  One of the things that makes me feel really happy is swinging on a swing and flowers.  I think this picture points to happiness.  Isn't she a precious image?  Happiness is in the little things; so take time to stop and smell the flowers, swing every chance you get and watch the gorgeous butterflies!  I go to the park and swing as often as I can.  It isn't just for kids.
