A First Anniversary
Green is their favoured colour, so I started by cutting a panel of this shaded green card so that the colour faded from left to right. I used a Memory Box die, Butterfly Heart, to cut slightly above the centre, and then punched a flower border with an X-cut edge punch. I folded all the butterfly wings upward a bit and the then stuck the whole panel onto some dark green card. I tied some striped green and blue organza ribbon around the mounted panel and tied a bow at the side. This was then fixed to a white 5" x 7" base card. The greeting was stamped with a Woodware stamp and Memento Olympia Green ink, and the card was finished with some rather nice sparkly pale green gems from my stash.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Monochromatic
Ruby's Rainbow - Anything Goes
Crafty Boots - Things With Wings.
