Tracy s card



This is a card I ve made for Tracy s birthday. She is a very talented crafter and a wondeful person( hence the sentiment on my card) so the pressure was on for me to create something beautiful and worthy for her special day, I just hope she will like it. I ve had those images from the Touch of nature set ( page 44) stamped for me by a fellow demo a while ago and I forgot all about them, and flicking through the SU catalogue to look for a suitable set and came across it and I was drawn to the beautiful butterfly, I initially planned to use 2 of them as my focal images but it was not to be and i ended up using the flower and just one butterfly instead. I rather like how it turned out and BOY do i need this set, is beautiful!! I ve made a cool background using some ink and one of the Cuttle bug embossing folder and my new Fiskars scalloped border punch that I ve had for 3 weeks and only just got round using it. I ve made a quick video tutorial on the Cuttle bug background so if you ve not seen it already Enjoy!!!!
