I made an 8"x 8" birthday card for a family member.

I matted and layered another beautiful paper from the First Edition Wild Flower paper pad with purple pearlescent card. I made a panel for the image with the purple card to create a border with the paper.

I chose the Marigolds & Morpho uncoloured set to work with. The images come in Jpeg and PNG format which enabled me to create this design in my graphics programme  plus print extra butterflies in different sizes. I used Copics to colour the flowers and butterflies to match the paper. The butterflies have been decoupaged to create depth.

I finished the card with a sentiment banner and a single purple pearl.
