Birthday Butterflies.........

Good morning everyone. Hope that we are all as fit as that butchers dog (apologies to any vegetarians, vegans or pescetarians).
Hello to Gwen70 and thank you for your kind fact thank you one and all !!!

Today's card was a quickie I needed to do. Its not a conventional size as it was an offcut from another project.
The base is PMD white hammered card and I cut one of the Spellbinders Bracket Borders along the bottom. I started in the middle then cut either side. Both sides did match but then I scuffed the right hand edge and had to trim a bit off (gnashing of teeth)
Edges inked with a smidgin of Dusty Concord Distress Ink.
I popped the sentiment on with foam pads after stamping and heat embossing.
I cut 3 Spellbinders Les Papillons 2 butterflies, 2 in purple and 1 in white and also 1 of its embossed shadows in purple.
I stuck the shadow flat in the middle and then the white one, with its wings free on top and then added 2 purple gems onto its antennae.

The purple butterflies were added either side, with their wings free too.
I then added some purple gems along the bottom to complete the outside.
As the bottom edge looked a bit bland as it was white on white, I cut a strip of purple card, edged it with the Bracket Borders cutting edge and suck it inside the card, then Dusty Concorded the edges. Voila !!!

Thanks again for popping along to the pond. Have a great day yawl.
