Butterfly Birthday

What a great afternoon I've had sat on the sofa watching the Grand Prix and crafting!!

I've popped over to Clean and Simple challenge #FTL159 where this week they have this sketch.

I have used my Butterfly stamps and punch to create this simple card

I started with a white card and stamped three bunches of flowers across the bottom, and wrapped 2 ribbons around the card above them. I then stamped the flowered wings of a butterfly 3 times on purple card, and 3 times on lilac card, and cut them out with a butterfly punch. These were then stuck along their bodies and staggered in 2 lines down the card. To finish, the sentiment was then stamped under the ribbon, and gems added as the butterflies heads.

Recipe : Card = SU Orchid Opulence, white and purple cards from my stash
Stamps = Flight of the Butterfly, Just Believe, and Verve
Inks = Rich Razzleberry
Tools = Butterfly punch
Extras = Purple and Lilac ribbons, and gems

Thanks for dropping by today, and I'll be back soon.
