Green butterfly

Hi all
A quick post today as I am feeling under the weather, I hope it doesn't turn into anything worse.

I had a great day at Ally Pally yesterday meeting the creative expressions team they are great people and the samples were wonderful.  I also bought the Groovi starter kit  from Clarity - I just hope I will be able to do it!!!

On to today's card green for my Mum as it was her favourite colour, who sadly passed away 13 years ago.
 For the background I've inked through the floral mask with a distress ink  then embossed with the CE star swirls classic adorned noble die in green and backed it with white, which I glittered with ice snow.
The happy birthday was from a mask and I used Glitzcraft silver embossing paste through it and cut it out with a Justrite die and inked through with distress ink.
For the finishing touches I used a Spellbinders butterfly which I gilded too and some CE ribbon finished off with my own hand made dazzler.

Have a great week and thanks for visiting.

  1. This is so pretty and elegant. I'm sorry for the loss of your mom and hope that making a card with her fav color made you smile at a pleasant memory with her. This card is beautiful with the dry and embossing paste. Very pretty and your bow is lovely. Thanks for joining us at Craft-Dee BowZ for our April challenge. Hugs, Gail
