It's my auntie's birthday on Monday, here's the card I made for her, I hope she likes it.
The papers are Papermania Vintage Notes which have a lovely linen texture, the sentiment is cut from one of the papers. I gave all the edges an inking with Tea Dye Distress Ink to given some definition as the colours are quite pale and muted. I used a Tonic border punch to add interest to the simple layout and to continue the butterfly theme.
The final touches are some ribbon, a bow with a gem brad in the centre, pearls, brown gems and "trails" for the butterflies done with Liquid Pearls. I was tempted to add some flowers but my aunt doesn't like overly fussy cards and they may have been overkill so I managed to resist the urge!
