I needed to make a birthday card for my mum and I tend to make her pink cards so they look pretty in her sitting room which is decorated in cream and pale pink.
I love butterflies and I've just bought a new embossing folder with beautiful swirls and butterflies.
The Waltzingmouse butterflies are the perfect size when stamped on shrink plastic as you can see...

The cream border also uses a stamp from the same set - Nordic Spring.
I used a Martha Stewart punch to make the brocade strip, some cream lace and a tiny doily stamp
for a button.
Off to the post-box now!!
