A birthday blog hop for STAMPloration's Shery

Hello today is the lovely Shery of STAMPlorations birthday and a blog hop has been organised in her honour. I am delighted to be taking part as she really is such the kindest, most generous lady and I want to be able to send her my very best birthday wishes.
I can't send real flowers so here are a couple of photos from my garden instead.

I decided I would use her lovely
Blossom like a butterfly stamp
with one of her great sentiments from fond expressions 2
together with the great o my stars stencil
I added some summery distress oxides to my card..picked raspberry, fossilised amber and worn lipstick
 I stencilled the star with abandoned coral distress ink

and stamped and embossed the sentiment.
I stamped the butterflies onto some inky mop up alcohol ink card and fussy cut them.
Here is my virtual birthday card for Shery. 
I would also like to link up with the following challenges;

Penny Black and More 3/3 things with wings
Stamping sensations 3/3 in my garden (great minds that we have such similar July challenges!)
Card Mania 3/5 anything goes
Creative fingers 3/3 anything goes

You can see more of the DT's who are taking part in this birthday hop over on the main STAMPLorations challenge blog here.
Happy Birthday dear Shery, have a wonderful day and thanks for everything you do. Happy Summer! 

Back soon,

Bye for now,
