Today's feminine French birthday card has taken me days to craft. Not so much fun!
The printed paper is of unknown origin layered on a shimmery brushed gold also of unknown origin. The images are Altenew Painted Butterflies stamped in Stampin' Up Early Espresso and More Mustard, and Close To My Heart Blush on a Vanilla of unknown origin. The butterflies were die cut from the coordinating Altenew die. The sentiment is Bonnidee French Wording #1 stamped in Early Espresso on more Vanilla and layered on more brushed gold. The embellishments are Doodlebug mini pearls.
Finding inks that worked with this flower almost drove me insane. I finally had to put this card aside otherwise it would have ended up in the garbage. I finally settled on More Mustard and Blush and I think it works well. I used the second impression on the butterfly in the bottom right to make it a little more pale and I think its pretty good. The Blush isn't as much of a contrast as I'd hoped but sometimes, you just have to settle.
I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
