Well I've had a couple of days off. I've been a bit off to be honest. The lovely fibro flare paid me a visit and unfortunately knocked me for six. Oh I do wish it would stop visiting me quite so often as it has been lately. Anyway I pulled myself together a bit today because I needed to make a card that my lovely son asked for. A very dear friend of his has had a large operation today so he asked me to make a card for her. it was the least I could do. It's been quite amusing making this card (it's a good job I can laugh at myself) as my tremor has been playing me up something rotten. I decided to have a go at making a little butterfly out of parchment. Silly me doing something that needs a steady hand. It took me a while but I got there.
The image is from some really lovely papers I got free from Making Cards magazine. The magazine was a bargain anyway as it had Parchment Craft magazine with it. Anyway I did lots of layers of white and purple and on the final layer added some peach ribbon and a bow. I stamped the sentiment and a little flower - I used Promarkers to colour this - which I made into a little tag. I knew I wanted to add little butterfly but wasn't sure where. In the end I decided to put it on top of the bow. I added little gems, a little Stickles on the purple flowers and that was it. I didn't want the card to be over the top and I think I succeeded in keeping it pretty but simple.
