Hi everyone.  Hope you are all well.  I'm just dropping in briefly to share a card that I made a few weeks ago, for a friend who just got her first job as a teacher.
I scored a border with my trusty Simply Scored, then cut a panel to fit inside the scored area.  I stamped Congratulations from the Sassy Salutations set, in Primrose Petals.  Then I stamped various butterflies from Papillon Potpourri in Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder, Calypso Coral and Primrose Petals,  I edged around the panel with Wisteria Wonder.
I stuck the panel to the card and then stamped four more butterflies, two in WW and two in PP, on separate card which I then punched out with the corresponding punch.  I bent the wings up to give a little bit of definition, stuck them to the card and added a little bit of glitter glue. 

Hope you like it. 

It's half term this week, so I'm pressing on with Emily's birthday album (or should I say albums!).  Four weeks to get it all done.

We've had a busy weekend celebrating Edward's 14th birthday (my little boy!!) - more of that another time.

Thanks for dropping by.  As always, I appreciate your lovely comments.

Take care.

  3. It's really pretty! I love the way you stamped the butterflies onto the card stock and added some stamped and punched ones and the touches of glitter finish it perfectly. Vicky x
