Happy 1st birthday, Lily Pad!

For my post for the brand new challenge Crafty Friends post, please scroll down below or click HERE.

Welcome to the Lily Pad Cards’ First Birthday blog hop! I can't believe it's been a year since we had a blog hop to introduce Lily Pad to the crafting world! What a great year it has been and am looking forward to many  more! You should be joining us from Sarah Moerman’s blog.

There are three prize packages with a total retail value of over $300! These prizes will be awarded by random draw. To be eligible, you need to “like” Lily Pad on Facebook. If you would like to better your chances, you can leave comments on the blogs participating in this hop (including the Lily Pad). For each comment, you get your name entered again (but only one comment per blog, please).

Here is my Birthday card for today celebrating Lily Pad's first. I stamped the solid butterfly from The Craft's Meow's Beautiful Spring set and mounted it on two die cuts (from Spellbinders' Persian Accents dies). The beautiful papers are My Mind's Eye.

Here you can see close up the different layers and, of course, that lovely corner bling from Want2Scrap. The sentiment is from The Craft's Meow's Timeless Tags set. You can see more cards using this layout here.
