Butterfly Wishes

My daughter recently celebrated her birthday and I wanted to create a special card for her, this is what I came up with.

Used: 'Social Butterfly' 30-116, 'Postcard' 1369L, 'Letter background' 1999L, 'Flowers Sweet' 30-096, 'Words Express' 30-106, 'Fuchsia  Fantasies' 13-001 and 13-003

I stamped the Postcard, letter writing and daughter words with Versafine Black ink onto white card and coloured with Shabby Shutters Distress ink using a blending tool.  I then over-stamped  the edges with the leaf from Flowers Sweet set using Versafine Spanish Moss ink. The Post card was cut out using deckle edge blade on a trimmer and mounted onto Mix and Match card (that had been hand stitched).

On separate white card I stamped the butterfly twice with Seedless Preserves distress ink and then shaded using same ink and blending tool, cut out and layered using dimensional glue.I then added it to the postcard to finish.

For other butterfly inspiration check out the Penny Black blog here.

Thanks for visiting me today.

Clever how you used the "To" portion of the postcard to address it to your daughter!

Love the way you've used the 'wonderful' sentiment here & the way the colours work together - very striking indeed. I love the way you stamped the edges of the postcard too & made it so authentic wth the letter background.
