Butterfly birthday!

Good morning all!

What a beautiful day, the sun is shining and to top it off I have the day off work!

Today I though I'd share with you a card I recently made for my neice's 16th birthday. I hope she liked it! She went to NewYork with her parents to celebrate! Lucky thing!!

I went for a pink, black and white theme with butterflies! I just adore butterflies at the minute!

A simply decorated inside....

Because the butterflies were lifting from the card I decided to make a box, using my score pal, so they wouldn't get squashed.

An arty farty angle to show the dimension of the butterfly.


CS: SU Whisper White, Basic Black, Melon Mambo

Paper: Designer Series Melon Mambo (Brights)

Stamps: Butterfly Prints, Curly Cute, Afterthoughts (Level 1 hostess set)

Tools: SU Scallop Trim Border & Butterfly punches, Square lattice embossing folder, Nestabilities

Misc: SU Adhesive Rhinestones, Rose Red stitch trim ribbon (Retired)

I really enjoyed making this set, it's not often I make a box to put the card in, but it makes it look so much more special!

Well thanks for stopping by today. I'm off into the garden to enjoy bit of sunshine before I get crafty later.

Hope you all get to enjoy a bit of sunshine today.

Hugs, Vicky ~x~

What a sophisticated card - just right for someone who's swanning off to New York! Love the box too - and the arty farty angle shows it off beautifully!
