Warmly Aged

Hello everyone,

Today's butterfly card had a more aged feel that is very different from the last few cards I've posted.

The printed paper is Kaisercraft Peachy Keen layered on an orange of unknown origin.  The images are Altenew Painted Butterflies stamped in Espresso, Dusk and Ocean Waves on a vanilla of unknown origin and highlighted with Wink of Stella Clear 999.  The sentiment is Close To My Heart Happy Birthday stamped in Mocha on Recollections Vanilla.  The background of the sentiment panel was stamped with Stampin' Up Timeless Textures in Altenew Rocky Shore and layered on more Kaisercraft Peachy Keen (the flip side).  The card is highlighted with Copper Pearl Liquid Pearls.

It always amazing me how you can take similar elements but create an entirely different card.  If I'd used more of a yellow paper, this card would have had the same Provence feeling that the earlier cards have had.  This printed paper isn't all that pretty but there was something about these flowers that really struck a cord and I love how it makes the butterflies pop!

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
