A birthday card...

.... for Chris, who is a forum friend.  Funny how I always gravitate back to these bluey-green colours.  I would never I have said they were my favourite colours but they so often appear in my work. The stamps are Tim Holtz and I have double layered a couple of the butterflies for a bit of extra dimension.

What a lovely card. The double layering of the butterflies makes all the difference. Lucky Chris.

Stunning, Carol - love the 3D flutterbies - they always ask for that treatment, somehow, don't they? Love the colours and I use them in almost everything, too. Strange how we're drawn to certain colours and colour combos, isn't it? Love the paper/fabric in the b/g - I'm sure I have some pretty papers like this somewhere... amongst all the rest of the stuff I've never used!

Beautiful design Carol and I love the texture the trim brings to the whole piece.
I have coveted those stamps for an age & have ordered them but I am getting the plate Attic Treasures :0)

This photo doesn't really do the card justice, it looks so much better IRL. I know because it is now on my mantle. Thank you Carol xx

Beautiful card. I always seem to go for those colors too. The other day I was letting a friend pick out a card for her to give and she commented that I must really love those colors because almost all of the cards she was looking at were blue, green, or a combo of the two. LOL
