May all your dreams come true

I made this quick birthday card for a friend using my last piece of this lovely butterfly paper.  I'm entering the Alphabet Challenge 'V for Vellum', Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' and Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes'.


Card blank: 5" x 5" white matt
Stamp: Woodware 'Most Wonderful Birthday'
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black
Card: Black matt
Paper: Forever in Time ''Vintage 2', Vellum
Other: Wink of Stella

I trimmed the butterfly paper to about 1cm smaller than the card blank and layered it onto black card.  I stamped the sentiment onto vellum and trimmed it when the ink had dried.  I wrapped the vellum around the top of the paper and attached it on the rear with tape.  The whole panel was then attached to the card front.  To finish I highlighted the butterfly with a Wink of Stella.
