Missy's Birthday Card!

My niece Missy (sister's oldest daughter) had a birthday the end of April and this is the birthday card that I made for her.  I cased my dear friend Peggy Dollar's card for this one......thanks Peggy!   This is one of my favorite cards that I've ever made......I just love the gorgeous pink water colored background that Peggy found online and pinned to her Pinterest Board, as it just makes this card!!!  I used punched circles of the water color paper to make the "faux pearls" in the upper left corner and I made the "segmented" parts of the butterfly's body using NUVO drops that I then colored with a Copic marker to match my card's color scheme.  I made a "backing" and a "body" for my butterfly....the backing is made out of vellum cardstock that I spattered with gold water color drops and both were cut using my Cameo  The butterfly is cut from my new Poppystamps "Dream" die

Close-up of my butterfly.

Close-up of the foliage  I used (list of dies and cut files below in the supply list). 

Here is the inside....the roses are a printed graphic.

I printed the water colored background on water color paper and adhered it to the front of my envelope.

Missy loved her card and I was so happy to make it for her special day!!!  One thing that I want to point out is that this card was totally made using water color paper.  Please come back soon!!!
