Isabella Butterfly

I made this card for a friend's birthday - someone who doesn't like 'girlie' colours.

I covered the front of the card blank with purple and teal patterned paper leaving a border around the edge.  I die cut 'Happy Birthday' from white hammer card and attached it across the bottom of the card, lining up the edges with the paper.  I die cut 'Happy Birthday' from dark purple pearlescent card and inlaid the letters.  To finish, I die cut a butterfly from dark purple pearlescent card and attached it above the sentiment.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 4" white hammer card blank
     Memory Box 'Grand Happy Birthday' and Memory Box 'Isabella Butterfly' dies
    Snippets of Lili of the Valley ''Antebellum' paper, dark purple pearlescent card and white hammer card

I think I am going to have to purchase that word die as it looks to be very versatile. I like the way you have laid over the purple design paper. Thankyou for coming and playing in the butterfly garden. There was a pretty white one with spots on the wings flying around this morning. Not a cabbage white and not seen before. Hugs Mrs a.
