Pretty in Peach....

Birthday Card
If you read my post yesterday you will know I attempted to make some birthday cards I need this week and my Mojo didn't want to play so I made an ATC instead, well this Morning I still needed a birthday card urgently so with Mojo still awol I used the challenge at LIM #51 Theme Cut it Out! for my inspiration.


After a rummage through my card I found this lovely shade of peach card blank I cut the Spellbinders die Butterfly Circles in white card  which I then stencilled through the die after cutting with Distress Ink Wild Honey, the butterflies are from the die which I then stuck around the circle, I added Cosmic Shimmer Coloured Pearlescent PVA (love this stuff) to the centre of the butterflies and around the inner circle. Inside I attached the circle cut from the centre of the card and a smaller one in white card which I inked again with DI and stamped the greeting here is a close up


Stamps are from SU Whimsical Words and butterfly from Hello Again sets, the best wishes was loose and I'm not sure which set that has escaped from...lol





Another Photo from another angle so hard to get the inside to show up well, I was pleased with the end result and a refreshing change to use spring colours.  As my friend is only a week younger than me I thought the sentiment was apt......I'm sure she will have something to say though....lol.


I will also like to play along at the Joanna Sheen Challenge blog the theme is " Celebrations"

Thanks for looking

Bye for now
