Y is for Years and Yellow

I made this card for a friend's 'special' birthday later this month.  I'm entering the Butterfly Challenge 'Y is for Years and Yellow',  The Crafty Barn Two Weekly Challenge ' Butterflies, Seize the Birthday 'Birds, Bees or Butterflies' and the Lili of the Valley 'Summer in the Garden' challenge.


Card blank: 7" x 5" white silk
Image: Lili of the Valley ' English Charm' Art Pad
Die: Memory Box 'Classic Numbers'
Punch: EK Success 'Swiss Cheese'
Card: Yellow matt
Paper: Wild Rose Studio 'Bella' paper
Other:  Wink of Stella

I trimmed yellow card slightly smaller than the card blank and attached a strip of purple paper across the bottom.  I punches the Swiss Cheese along one edge of yellow/lilac paper before layering it onto the card and attaching it to the card front.  I trimmed the pre-coloured topper, layered it onto yellow card and attached it to the card front.  The numbers were die cut from yellow card and attached to the top corner of the topper.  To finish I highlighted the image and numbers with a Wink of Stella.

Those Art Pads always have such fabulous images. They were rare to find over here before they were discontinued and of course now it is impossible.

Your card is so very pretty!
