Fabrications Birthday Wishes

Hi everyone,

Just thought I'd share the card which I made for my Sister-in-law's recent birthday...

I've used the Fabrications papers by Teresa Collins, which were a freebie with Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine, along with one of the matching chipboard sentiments.

The panel for the sentiment has been made using Spellbinders Opulent Oval dies. I've added a coloured doily and also made a panel using a Martha Stewart border punch and some ribbon from my stash. All matting is black card (aided by a perfect layer ruler).

The butterfly is a Cheery Lynn one. I added a piece of double sided adhesive to the card before I cut out the butterfly. I added micro beads to this but didn't like it and found that if I rubbed the beads off I got a lovely foiled look to the butterfly...happy accident!

I've finished off with an assortment of flowers.

I would like to enter this for the following:-
Thanks for visiting. I hope to see you again soon
Hugs Helen xx
