Purple Butterfly Birthday


I was a bit stuck for inspiration when I started this card, so started with the Little Butterfly image from  Meljens Designs, painting it with twinkling H2O's, and after cutting it out with a Spellbinders labels eleven die, chalking the background with blue.

The trail was highlighted with Ice Stickles

Sequins and rhinestones, and an embossed sentiment finished off the panel

This was mounted over some patterned paper, and then onto a purple base.

Maxine, this is darling! I'm hopeless with the H20's, so I'm impressed with your coloring on this design. Also the stickles was a terrific addition to highlight the flight path of this cute butterfly! TFS & Hugs.
