Butterfly Birthday




Isn't this image fabulous?  She is called 'Aliah' by Hannah Lynn  & I just l-o-v-e-d colouring this one in with my Promarkers! I created myself a mask for the image too so that I could colour the sky without encroaching onto any of her rippling locks.

All the dimensional butterflies

She is set on a couple of mats including one using a butterfly border to match the larger one which is towards the top of the card. I then made myself individual butterflies to go onto each one on the mats offsetting each one at an angle to hopefully give the impression that the kaleidoscope of butterflies were hurriedly taking flight having just been disturbed. (I know, I have a vivid imagination....LOL). This mat was then mounted onto the card using foam pads. For the other mats on the front of the card, one was distressed & one was torn, embossed with an Embossalicious Lattice folder & then paper-pierced. What I thought to be the perfect sentiment to go with all my cut butterflies was one created by Paulette at TLC so I popped this onto the front too.

Still more butterflies on the inside - but all a lot flatter.

Yet more cut-files on the inside of the card - but this time a different row of butterflies placed at the top & bottom of the card.  I used a couple of the 'spare butterflies' left over from the cut-out border to dot about & to decorate the sentiment I had created myself on the PC replicating, as near as I could, the fonts that Paulette & used on the front sentiment. Close-ish but you probably wouldn't have even thought about it had I not mentioned it would you, LOL.

Thanks for visiting my blog & I hope you like the card.
