Butterflies garden

I was asked to make a birthday card to a nice couple who celebrate their birthdays together. Request was that it should be exactly like this card.The previous card was meant to specific event and I already made over 70 of them :o) So, I refused politely. Instead, I took some elements of it and made a similar card :o) I've wanted to make a lattice long time, now I got a chance :o)


It is so easy to make a pretty card if you have beautiful design papers :o) Once again, I've used digi paper from The Emerald Faerie Garden - Apple blossom kit. Warning: I have few more I haven't used yet ;o). Stamped butterflies are from Sissix Hero Arts stamp & die-cut - "Butterflies". Small white-pinkish butterflies are by the company named Colibry. I think they are actually meant for sowing on to the clothes, 'cause they have two holes on it for thread. I covered the holes with Stanger Pearl Paste - white pearl. Hole on front and also sentiment pieces are cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities - Lacy Circles. All the coloring is done with  AtYouSpica glitter pens - pink (on flowers), yellow (on flower stems) and olive (leaves), Sakura Gelly Roll pen - Clear Star (on butterflies wings), regular water base felt markers and water brush for coloring (butterflies). Edges of papers are distressed with Dovecraft  Pigment Ink Pad - Berry Purple. And Brilliance - Graphite Black for stamping butterflies. On flower centers are Core' Dinations Match Pearls.
