A special one, for a special one!

Good morning, well sort of- im writing this on Wednesday night before i go to bed, but your used to me doing that sometimes right?
I wanted to show you the card for my Mumsy's birthday, she loves floral/butterfly type cards with pretty borders and stuff, so this went down well.  I nearly forgot to photograph it, remembered at her house and had to snatch it back for 5 minutes.
The floral card has been floating around for a loooooong time, I also used White centura pearl card from Crafters Companion-love it!

The birds eye view

I used Magenta Pan Pastel to colour the sides of the butterflies, I have to say I really love how easy they are to blend, the result is flawless with no effort at all-Thank you Bernie for sending me these!

The stamp is from Claritystamp. The circle is a large Marianne die, I cut a nesty circle into it and then with the dies still in place run it through my Cuttlebug with an embossing folder.

Hopefully I will have Amber's bunting on the wall and photographed to show you tomorrow.
Have a good Thursday.
