Shades of Green - Aurora Wings Butterfly Mask

Hi everyone,

I would like to share this little beauty with you that I made for my niece in law (nephews wife) as she is Italian born, I thought it quite apt for her birthday card.

I coloured the Butterfly mask with my Copics and the DP is Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics - 6th of May papers set on white American Card stock, the clock is a Tim Holtz Alterations Weathered Clock die which I added green glitter to, the corners also Maja DP are cut with Spellbinders Ornate Squares die, the butterflies are cut with Les Papillions Two dies.

For the green organza ribbon rose I cut short strips of ribbon, glued the centres of each piece to a piece of card, then held my heat gun over it to just melt the edges so it curled, first time I have tried this but it seemed to work out alright, I placed a white paper rose in the middle.  And of course lots of Star Dust stickles.

This was just a quick post this time round, lots of cards for birthdays still to be done, and a friend requested a birthday card yesterday too, so busy, busy!

I will enter this card into the following Challenges
