Girly Pink Card

I have so many birthdays coming up that I need to start making a card or two each night for the next week to get them all done.

I've had a play tonight, and followed the sketch on Card Pattens to create this gorgeous card.



Although the photo makes the card and papers I have used look red, the larger of the two papers is in fact a fushia kind of pink and the spotty one pale pink to match the organza flowers. The backing papers are Henbury Lane 'Perfect Summer Days', and both of them are quite glittery. I have used my Friskas punch on one of the mats, and my plain and scalloped squares to make a mat for the butterfly. I've added some deep pink and pale pink bling to the middle of the butterfly to give it some sparkle. As usual the butterful was cut on the craft robo.

This card certainly wasn't one of my quickest makes, with all the matting I have done, but it certainly has to be one of my favourite recent makes. I have so many pretty papers left in the Henbury Lane pack, that I will be making up some more of these.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Craft Fairies Challenge - scalloped squares
