Butterfly Wishes

You know these thoughts that hit you in the middle of the night? Well here are the results. I bought Barbara Grays' 'lesson 9' from C&C the other week but couldn't afford everything else to complete the lesson so have put my own spin on it. I used the petal stamps from the set for the purple & green card & flowers from artemio stamp set for the pink & blue.
I embossed the butterflies with white ink & clear embossing powder & picked out the matching colour PM to colour the wings. The cards were matted & layered up with embossed white card adding ink or gems to hi light then added the butterflies. Voila! Hope you like?

Happy Birthday Tom

Teenagers can be so difficult to accommodate when it comes to making cards. It has been known for me to purchase cards from a shop!
I've thought long and hard about my youngest son and decided Boofle would be perfect for him he's at college studying photography.
I've used straight edges as I think they look quite masculine but also tried to incorporate jaunty angles and texture with buttons, ribbon and string.
