In the Pink

I made this card for a friend's birthday using a Hunkydory Deco-Large floral kit - 'In the Pink'.

I trimmed gold mirri card so it was slightly smaller than the card blank.  I trimmed the floral backing card slightly smaller than the mirri and cut it so I could inlay a strip of patterned card.  These pieces were then layered onto the mirri and attached to the card.  The images were already die cut so I popped them out of the carrier sheet and carefully removed the small 'pips'.  I used Pinflair glue to build the decoupage layers and attached the panel to the left side of the card before attaching a sentiment to the upper corner.  To finish I die cut two small butterflies from gold mirri and attached them to the floral panel.

To make this card I used:
     7" x 7" white matt card blank
     Hunkydory 'Flourishing Florals Designer Deco-Large - In the Pink' kit
     Tattered Lace 'Mini Butterfly' die
     Gold mirri

I am entering the following challenges:
     Butterfly Challenge - Spin the Wheel with the letter G (I have used one colour 'Gold' with my butterfly)
     Love to Craft - Anything Goes
     Pearly Sparkles Challenge - Something beginning with P (I have used the colour Pink)

I hate those little pip bits that get left behind and always manage to snip too much off! I like this card. It is very chic looking. Thankyou for coming and spinning the butterfly wheel on the first challenge of the year. hugs Mrs A.
