Butterfly Birthday Wishes

Hi, Just sharing a card I made between jobs at home today!!

Butterfly Birthday Wishes Card

I am truly in love with the new Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities 'Wonderful Wings' dies - they fit together so perfectly. I firstly cut the solid butterfly outline out of patterned paper and layered it onto some plain cardstock. i then went ahead and cut the detailed wings out of complimentary patterned paper. I think the cut-out shape with those pretty butterfly wings over the top looks so effective and I've had it in my mind to do this forever!!.

I stamped the wonderful birthday sentiment from the 'Eat Cake' Waltzingmouse stamp set in chocolate brown ink onto the label which I cut using the Spellbinders 'Fancy Tags' die. I added some cream zig zag stitching around the edge of the card to make a border, added some lace, Label and ribbon, adhered it all to my card base and Voila!! I love it when things come together easily!
