Butterfly Decoupage

Soooo, this is the second card I will be sharing with you today.  I may make some more later, or I might get absorbed in Dr Who and catching up on my telly from the week. 

Anyway, before I start going off on a tangent, here is my card:

It's so pretty isn't it?  I originally started this as an order from the step-mother (non-wicked), but she wanted a name putting on it and I don't think there is room without ruining the card.  I will think about that one.

I have accidentally pretty much followed the sketch over at A Gem of a Challenge, probably as I had it in my head from earlier.  So, I think I will enter it into that challenge.

The pink paper, sentiment and the decoupage butterfly topper were from a Hunkydory Flutterby wishes set I got free with this month's Cardmaking & Papercraft,  I have to say, it is one of the best freebies I have had in a while from any magazine.  I've added a photo to show you the depth and layers of the decoupage.

The mirror card, ribbon and gem brads are from my stash.

The decoupage was put together using silicone glue, as I find it gives a better finish that sticky pads,  mirror card behind the decoupage topper was die-cut using a Spellbinders nestibility.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Happy Crafting!
