Butterfly to Heaven

I have had a busy day today. I offered to do the food for my friend Jackie's Nan's funeral tomorrow, so I have been shopping and made all the buffet for tomorrow, and also had time to make her a card, to help her through this difficult time. I have already sent one to the whole family, but I wanted to give her one, just for her.
Here it is......

You know, this card looks so much more gorgeous in real life! Anyway, this is my new, stunning Butterfly die from Marianne and I've been dying to use it! I have cut it out 3 times, once each in dark purple shimmer, lilac shimmer and vellum. I then layered them up and bejewelled it! I used the vellum just to tone the purple down a touch as it was very overpowering. I love the effect! :) The swirls in the corners of the card are the swirls that were cut from the wings of the butterfly. I added two heart gems to finish them off. You can't see here but I've used the reverse side of a linen card blank, so it has a very slight texture, but not as much as the right side. 
I hoe you like it, and I hope it helps Jackie :)


Right, off to work now....see you soon!
