Timelessly Elegant Butterfly

Good afternoon all!
I hope you are well? Isn't it nice to finally have summertime here in the UK? Ok, so the weather is still not quite there yet, but it's so nice to have the lighter evenings isn't it?!

Anyway, I came into my craft room this morning to make a card for my niece's 2nd birthday tomorrow, and came up with this...'s a birthday card but not quite right for a 2yr old right? Hmmm....back to the drawing board then! 

Anyway, how did this card come about? Well as it's Saturday I thought I'd pop and see what the challenge at Less Is More is, and it's White Space, but not the colour white, so that inspired a coloured card base and the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches gave me my layout....
Then I thought I'd use some DSP and Timeless Elegance was at the top of the box, then I just fancied a pop of colour, hence the Blackberry Bliss butterfly from Watercolour Wings. 

I'm hoping you can see above the subtle sparkle from my Wink Of Stella pen...I used the clear one to give some shimmer to my butterfly.

And above you can see the Gold embossed sentiment from Teeny Tiny Sentiments...perfectly tiny enough to give a message without taking anything away from the main panel.

If you'd like to order any of the items I used today, please do click on my link just over there on the right. >>>>>
And thank you if you do! :)

I am really happy with this card! Now I better go get my niece's card made!

Have a lovely Saturday!
