Wishing You A Perfect Day

What is your idea of a perfect day?  Mine is relaxing in a beautiful garden spot.  Well, that won't happen for awhile, now will it? 
I made this card as a birthday card (for later in the year).  Don't you love this pop up bench?  It is one of the wonderful die cuts by Elizabeth Crafts, our generous sponsor this month for the Die Cut Diva's Challenge.

Here is the front of the card:
I stamped the hydrangea image, by Our Daily Bread Designs, then sponged on several colors of ink.  The butterfly, also ODBD,  is stamped with blue ink onto blue cardstock with touches of blue Stickles added.
The sentiment "perfect day" is Stampin Up and "wishing you" is GKD.
So this being January 1, we have a long wait for a day for the bench in the park but it was fun to make this card and play with this fabulous die cut by Elizabeth Crafts.
Come play the challenge at Die Cut Divas.  Maybe you could win a gift certificate.
