Simple birthday card

A colleague of mine has a birthday in a few days time, so I thought I'd make her a card. I know she doesn't like cards to be too fussy or pretty so thought I would keep it simple.

I started with Centura Pearl and and some dark pink card


I embossed the pearl card with a butterfly embossing folder from Sizzix.



I then used distress ink in Peacock lightly over the butterflies and used chipped sapphire around the edges. I kept it light. I also added a ribbon.




Next I added a bow and brad and assembled the card. I added another butterfly and a stamped a sentiment. Lastly I added some liquid pearls.





I'm sorry the photos aren't very good - I lost the light and so used artificial light which has dulled the colours slightly.

Thank you for looking. Please leave a comment. X
