Today I am sharing a card I have made for my Gran’s Birthday which is in a couple of weeks.
I am linking up to the May challenge at Scrapbook Boutique here.
This is the perfect inspiration for a card for Gran. She loves butterflies and I think they are pretty great too.

Here is my card
I started by inking my Tim Holtz embossing folder with SU brown sugar ink and embossing SU Kraft cardstock. Next I stamped a couple of images from Papersmooches Botanicals 1 & 2 with SU Old Olive ink using second generation stamping to get variations in colour onto SU Very Vanilla cardstock. I die cut this with Lifestyle crafts nesting circles and a base in green from my scraps using the same set of dies. I die cut butterflies from glimmer gold paper (not sure where I got this from and it lighter than normal cardstock) using SU Butterflies thinlits and SU embosslits Beautiful wings. I layered all this onto my card front along with a scrap of twill ribbon and a die cut Mpress Birdcage cut from off white glimmery paper. To finish off I added a few sequins I picked up from Trimmings and Remnants.
Here is a closer pic. I used my phone for the pics today.
