Apothecary Butterfly

Hello peeps, it's all go here, as usual! I didn't realise how many days had gone by since I last posted.
I realised I'd completely forgotten to show you this little creation:
I made it for Victoria Jefferies' birthday back in early April. She's one of the members of the card swap group I'm running, and a very talented crafter.
 I don't think I've ever sat down at my desk and whipped something up so quickly (because I am an incompetant oaf who should have taken more notice of the date in the first place!)
I literally finished making it and put it straight in the post so it's quite nice to revisit it again.
Here are the deets:
The card base is Baja (boo hoo!) Breeze, 5x7"
Layer 1 is Basic Black cardstock.
Layer 2 is just plain white cardstock, run through a 5x7 ef and trimmed to size.
Layer 3 is So Saffron cut with the 3rd largest labels framelit
Layer 4 A stamp from the Apothecary Art stamp set (luvs youuuuu!) which isn't coloured in at all.
Layer 5 A strip of dsp from the Twitterpated set.
Layer 6 A butterfly, not actually SU, but lovely nonetheless, also in So Saffron basic dsp.
Layer 7 A pearl!
I hope that's enough layers for you!

A close up of the Baja Breeze ruffled ribbon and a pretty pin from Wild Orchid Crafts. Note to self: buy more of these.
Thanks for dropping in today.  Feel free to leave a comment, they are very important to me, I love to hear what you think.
Back soon with my sister's birthday card.
Have a great weekend, everyone.  I am actually at work, but hoping to get some crafting done in between shifts!

  2. Such a gorgeous card Jane. I love your colour scheme and all the lovely layers. The Apothecary stamps are beautiful, I must use mine more. The piece of ribbon on the pin is such a lovely finishing touch.
    Good luck with selling your cards on your stall - I'm sure they fly out! x x
