Butterfly In A Garden

I made this card for a good friend's birthday.  The original card appeared in an issue of Australian Simply Cards magazine.  This particular issue has a fantastic array of cards that are right up my alley.  I love them.
I have changed things a touch.  I've used more layers and the sentiment is different from the original.  My card base is very vanilla, with a layer of cherry cobbler.  The dp has had some fussy cutting added to the top left hand corner.  Bashful blue has been used for the butterfly wings, which were stamped and rock candy distress stickles added.  Rock candy distress stickles have also been added to the flowers on the dp.  I think that's it.  Thanks for visiting my blog today.  Keep well.

Gorgeous Leigh!!! I love the richness of this card, that is a beautiful butterfly die and I know the card would look nicer yet again IRL where we could see the glittered parts and also the raised corner flowers!
