Hope you are all having a good weekend. I made this card a couple of weeks ago and I was not happy with it as it was coming together. I don't know why and I'm still not sure whether I like it or not, but hey-ho, you win some you lose some! I did, however, love the paper- may be that's why I persevered with it- and didn't want to consign it to the bin! I used DCWV Cafe Mediterranean Stack. The butterfly paper is glossy and very opulent, almost oriental. I covered the card with pale yellow paper and added a border strip to the left of the card edged with an MS punch and embellished with rust coloured ribbon and bow. I adhered this to a panel of butterfly print paper and topped it with a scalloped oval frame cut from green patterned paper. The frame was embellished with flowers and pearls. I cut the sentiment from copper mirri and adhered it flat inside the frame. I added a panel of patterned paper inside the card with a punched border and scalloped mat.
Scalloped frame & shadow- Ashlyn's Alphabet
Scalloped oval inside card- A Child's Year (or you can use Storybook)
