I made a card!

This is the first time I've ever made a card I am pleased with!  I hardly ever make cards as I am really, really bad at it.  Anyway, after seeing all the gorgeous cards Helen makes I was inspired to try again as it's my DD's birthday coming up soon.
The background is from a Crafty Individuals backgrounds book and has lots of lovely grungy colours in it.  I smooshed some brilliance inks onto my craft sheet, spritzed them with water then dipped a chipboard word and some grungepaper into the wet inks.  I stamped a Studio 490 butterfly onto the grunge and cut them out, used some gems for the bodies then stuck them on around a Prima flower.  I covered a K&Co "thinking of you on your birthday" ticket with rock candy crackle paint then swiped some cosmic shimmer mists over it when it was dry.  I used rock candy stickles on the word, and coloured a crown (she is my princess, lol) with a gold krylon pen and then put some antique linen stickles over the top of that.  It's all very sparkly and I like how it looks.

Ahh, Kay, thanks! I think this is great - you should make more cards! I love those butterflies, and the "celebrate" is FAB.

Snap! Am in the middle of making a card and I hate doing them! I really do! But am pleased with this one. It's for someone who loves Ray Winstone and I found a picture of him all tied up. Say no more! :P

Yours is just stunning, your daughter is very lucky to be receiving it, it's a piece of art!
