A present for you

Hello lovely people,

I have scheduled this to post while I am at friends; we are planning a nice long walk and then we will be busy making their Save the Date cards for their wedding next year :-)
We are also having a BBQ...I hope the weather is kind to us!

I'm sharing another card for the LOTV Design Collective and first off I have to say that the image is now retired so I'm sorry if I'm tempting you with something you can't have :-(

This was actually going to be a CAS design but then the layers crept in, so it's not really any more...although I did avoid the temptation to add a load of flowers!

I've covered the ribbon and the butterflies with Wink of Stella and I think you can see some of it in the close up!
I also cut out and layered up the butterflies for a little bit of dimension.

I thought I'd keep with the butterfly theme and use my new memory Box butterfly dies - they do have little bodies as well but I actually really like them without!

Card recipe;
Image: retired stamp - LOTV
Dies: tea label tags and old Swedish lace - Magnolia Doohickeys, Leavenworth & Cascadia butterfly trios - Memory Box

Copic colours;
Bunny: E40/41/42/43
Present / butterflies: BG10/11/32 & BG15/18 for spots
Ribbon / butterflies: R81/83/85
Grass: YG61/63/G94
Wink of Stella (clear) on ribbon and butterflies
