When it was a friend's birthday a couple of months ago she was sent some gorgeous die-cut mats from a friend in Holland. She kindly shared them with me so I thought it was about time I made some into cards. I have used various backing papers from my stash and on top of this place a white and gold vellum. I've never put patterned vellum on top of patterned paper but like the effect. I've attached the vellum with four brads I bought 1-2 years ago and have never used. The butterfly is from Papermania and it is a build-your-own- butterfly. I couldn't cut around the attenae so I made them out of wire instead. The butterfly I have coloured in with Promarkers and added clear and green Stickles glitter glue to accent the butterfly wings. I have distressed the edges of the die-cut mount to accentuate the cut area.
This card fits the following challenges:
Paper Sundaes - Photo as inspiration
