Butterfly Bday Card

Made this Birthday Card using a paint chip. You may ask what is a paint chip? Well, a paint chip is what the paint depts like in Home Depot and WalMart have cards that show the paint colors that are available for them to mix/prepare for you. Also, recycled/used a Butterfly die cut from my Tim Holtz Mar 2016 tag project that I'll be posting soon.
