{SS} Monthly Technique: Fun Folds

Good morning-
It's the 15th again...Time seems to be flying lately!! 
So today and the rest of the month, SweetStamps is challenging you to try a new technique!!
This month's theme is: 
Fun Folds
For my card today, I made a stretch card!!!  OMG...was this so much fun to make!!
It's the first time I have ever attempted such a card and really love it!!! 
It has been really cold here lately and I wanted to do something very bright and springy feeling. 
I love the way this card displays the patterned paper.  The paper is by Doodlebud Designs called Springtime!!  And those butterflies are all SweetsStamps, SweetCut dies.  
Even though I made this card into a Birthday card today, can you see all the beautiful possibilities for this type of card!?!?!  They are seriously endless!!!  :)
