Butterfly Parcels

Morning lovely peeps.

A quick sneaky peek of my Mum's birthday card. 

I cut the base shape from a folded sheet of strong A4 card. The 'parcels' are rectangles cut from Prima papers and edged with distress ink. I've tied ribbon around them before attaching to the card base.

I stamped and embossed the butterflies onto acetate with Versamark/white embossing powder and cut them out. They're attached with PVA glue at the centres and I've added a few gems for butterfly trails.

The flower was a pale pink shade that didn't match, so I coloured it with a Graph'It marker.

The tags are from the LOTV sentiment tags set, stamped onto matching papers.
