Hello guys
 Its a very special day for me and I am super excited. I started blogging on 26th March, 2016 with no knowledge about blogging and I didn't know how I would be able to connect to the world to show them my work. But with lot of support from family and friends and majorly by my husband Chintan, I mustered a lot of courage and determination and finally started blogging. Honestly I didn't know I would survive this long on this platform, but I like crafting and I kept doing my work as usual and posted them on my blog. Days turned into weeks and weeks into months and my confidence started to build.
I am very happy to say this today, I have crossed 1,00,000 visits to my blog today it has happened because of all of you who came to my blog to read my posts. Its not been that long since I started blogging, but the love and support I got from all of you makes me feel like I know you all since a very long time. I want to thank each and everyone of you who has made this possible. I have achieved a small milestone today but its very special and important to me and to celebrate this moment I am doing a giveaway on my blog, so go ahead and read the giveaway post to participate in it.
Now for today's card, because I am celebrating our achievement, I have made a celebration card. I am entering this card for the July challenge at Lulupu, Craft Stamper Magazine, Peek-a-boo Designs and Paru's Card making challenge.
The card layout is as per the challenge rules at Lulupu this month, I have lots of layering in my card which is mandatory for Peek-a-boo challenge. While the celebrate theme is also Birthday related which is the Challenge for the month at Paru's. Craft Stamper Magazine has a theme "Anything Goes" but requires stamping in the project. I think, the card I made fits the bill.
I took a 5.5"square white heavyweight cardstock and stamped butterfly stamp which is from Hampton Art Vintologic butterflies stamp set. Stamped the butterfly using shades of blue to give an ombre effect. I have used Memento Danube Blue, Bahama Blue and Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers Distress inks.
After stamping, I went ahead and cut a window in it. I then adhered the outer frame back on a pale sea green cardstock base. The I added a piece of clear vellum over it which was cut to 5" by 5". Now using some fun foam, I added the center piece back to the card. I then added a white frame which is 5.5"square and is 1/4" thick to the card. Finished the card front with the celebrate sentiment from Kaisercraft Pop! - Treats Stamp set on the same cardstock which is used on the base. I gave the sentiment banner ends and glued it to the card only on one end so the banner looks liked its sewed to the card. To give it a sewed look, I did some stitch marks using a black finetip pen.
For the inside, I stamped and fussy cut same butterfly in 3 colors on a white cardstock and  adhered it to the inside with some wet adhesive.Hampton Art Vintologic Butterflies Sta
