More Beautiful Butterflies

Soooo, I was going to use the card in Butterfly Decoupage as my grandma's birthday card, but the step-mother (non-wicked) took that to sell at her work - I can't say no - she is my biggest supporter after all.  Sooo, I had to make another one:

I made this using the same Hunky Dory Flutterby Wishes set and a pink blank from my stash.  I just love this set and could be tempted to invest in another.  Anyway, I added a few more bits and pieces.  The image, sentiment and backing paper are all from the set.  I stuck the sentiment on with sticky pads to give a bit of dimension.

The ribbon is from Hobbycraft, the flower from a job lot I got from Ebay a while ago.  The heart pins I got free a few months ago with Simply Homemade.  These are actual pins for sewing, but they are so pretty I keep using them on my cards.

The 'Grandma' letters are from my stash and I have had them so long I can't remember where I go them from. I have a feeling they were from Yellow Moon.  

The flat backed pearls are from my stash.  Finally, I added a tiny tiny pink gem to the right of the butterfly.  You can't really see this on the photo though, and it does blend in really well with the image.

I hope my Gran likes it.  She does love butterflies and we have certainly gone for a butterfly theme this year.  I will share the the gifts I have made in future posts.  In addition, she is also getting an Aloe Vera plant, as mine keeps sprouting babies and I keep having to give them away before the monster takes over my kitchen window.

Anyway, I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Fingers crossed.

Happy Crafting!
