U R 21

Before Christmas you may remember that I had to make five cards for a 75th Birthday all for the same family, well they now have a 21st Birthday coming up and yes I've been asked to make five 21st cards now. This one fits in with a few of the challenges and I'm safe to post this now as I know that the person receiving this card does not visit my blog. First I sprayed a piece if linen card stock with Dylusion Sprays and put to one side to dry while I got on with the rest of the card. I took an 8x8 white card blank and then folded the front of the card back on itself. I then cut out some flowers from some scraps of card from my box and also stamped the butterfly onto another piece. I used Stampin Up Bermuda Bay to stamp the butterfly which was from Impression Obsession and then with a water brush pulled out the colour. I then used the same ink around the edges of the flowers, before putting them together and adding some gems to the middles. Then with more scraps I cut out the Celebrate and u r 21, the leaf spray's were from some that I had already cut out.  I then cut up the background and popped onto the card using a silver linen effect card for the matting and also some silver ribbon too, then finally adding the flowers and butterfly.

 Below is a photo showing the fold in the card front.

I am going to take part in the following challenges with this card.
Butterfly Challenge - X is for extra fold and/or the colour peacock blue/green
Allsorts - Butterflies
A Bit More Time To Craft - Anything Goes
Pixies Snippets Playground - Must Use Scraps

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated

I love the beautiful background you have created for this card and the butterfly looks perfect. My mind would be a complete blank trying to come up with 5 different cards for the same person. Hope I put your stamp through the right door on Saturday?
Thankyou for fluttering into the butterfly garden for this challenge. Hugs Mrs A.
