I used a lovely floral frame digi from Floppy Latte for my entry into this weeks challenge.
I coloured the frame using Spectrum Noirs Leaves DG1, DG2, DG3, Large Flowers GB2, GB3, GB4
small flowers HB1, HB2, HB3, Berries CR10, DR1, DR3,
I fussy cut the image and stick it to a piece of cream adorable scoreable card and added the die cut happy birthday to the centre.
The backing papers are a lovely textured deep rust coloured paper from Paper Mill and a green Lace paper which was a freebie from a magazine and has been in my stash for so long it has got searated from the cover so I have no idea who makes it. I fussy cut the edges f the lace paper and layered it up onto the rust coloured paper. I added the flower frame to the centre and then die cut three butterflies from copper pearlised paper and added them to the design. I used Cosmic Shimmer dries clear glue to coat the centre of the large flower and then added black glass bugle beads to it. I used the same glue to add dimension and a glossy finish to the berries. For the butterflies bodies I used Black pearl cosmic shimmer PVA to add small pearls to the smaller butterflies and the larger one I piped a body then added orange flat back pearls from inky impressions. I finished by adding a frame of orange pearls around the edge of the green lace paper.
