Card for Katy

Made this card for my daughters' 30th birthday, wasn't exactly sure how I wanted it to turn out, but this is what I ended up with! I'll try to give a quick breakdown of the items I used on it, so..Centura Pearl card to make the base, then a mat cut out of the same, with colour reversed, and edged with Martha Stewart punch. On top of that there is a Dream background that ended up covered! then gossamer from Clarity Stamps. I then matted the sentiment, the birthday message,(from LOTV) and the numbers onto embossed white vellum. The large butterfly, which is a Cheery Lynn die from Joanna Sheen, has a vellum layer behind it, onto which I printed and gilded using Indigoblu script stamp, Flitter glue and flakes, which were also used on the numbers and the birthday sentiment. The decoupaged flower on the right is stamped with Indigoblu "Nature 1, and finished as before. Small butterflies are Joycraft dies from Maddylisa Crafts, coloured with Stickles, and the bird is a Tim Holtz stamp, covered with gossamer as before. Flowers and hatpin from Wild Orchid, pearls and ribbon from Joanna Sheen, and butterfly charm from stash. It's growing on me! Right, have to go and have a shower, still smell horsey from before! Keep smiling. x
