70th Birthday Butterflies

A commissioned card for a 70th birthday.
The brief was....... a hexagon shape, yellow, flowers and butterflies.
I am pleased that I eventually accomplished the request, as yellow is not a colour I use often so it was a bit of a struggle and so was cutting a hexagon lol.

The digi papers are from For the Record and the goldy colour is an Eva Kipler design. The laser cut butterflies are part of a cupcake wrapper. The Nellie die cut is glamour dusted around the edge and the round sentiment attached with foam pads.
I am happy to use the lovely fleur de lis border again and finished off with a metal MeiFlower butterfly.

I made the sentiment in Serif PPx2 and love the embossed look.

A handmade stick pin and utee'd flower on top of crinoline, net and seam binding ribbon

I  used the same Eva Kipler paper, added the butterfly  and printed it lighter for the inside

Thank you for stopping by
Cheers me dears :-)
