When A Butterfly Sees Flowers

Good afternoon craft lovers. When A Butterfly Sees Flowers, that's the name of my latest handmade birthday card. Actually I made this card sometime last week, but only today I have some free time to post it here.

Happy Birthday Handmade Card

When Butterfly Sees Flowers

I used a light green card as base and layered it with a yellow card. But somehow in the photo, my yellow card look more like gold card. For the final layer, I decided to used two different shades of patterned paper. For the front, I used a black background with tiny gold stars pattern paper while for the back or should I say inside of the card, I used a green and white patterned paper.

Yellow and green handmade birthday card

I die cut two border patterned oval shapes (one yellow and one black) same sizes and glued it to the front and centre. For the front part, I used the oval shape card as the background of my sentiment. While for the black oval shape, I used it as a frame for my decoupage flower. It has been sometime since I used a decoupage image in my card. Maybe I should do it more often.

For the final touch, I added some pearls and a die cut butterfly. Oh yes...and some gold border stickers too.

Decoupage Flowers

During the weekend I managed to find some lovely coloured cards. My flower box is also becoming empty, so I need to start stamping and die cutting or maybe hand cutting some flowers and leaves. For those of you who are familiar with my Craft With Love blog, will definitely know by now that I just love floral theme projects.

Looking forward to completing more projects this week, hopefully. Until then, Craft With Love
