I've had this card in mind since I chose the lovely Meljen Designs Fancy Butterfly as part of my winner choice of Digis.(Does that make sense?)
I just loved playing around with the image to achieve the background paper,I just added a touch of colour with the Copics,layering up with a selection of papers from a Dovecraft 6x6 paperpack.
The black rose was made using off cuts from when I had an evening dress shortened,this is so easy to do,I've fancied giving it a try ever since a fellow Southern Girls DT member Patricia made one in the "Use heat" Challenge a few weeks back,there's a link to a tutorial on her blog.
I added a few gems and pearls to the front of the card and on the inside I added a layered panel of the printed image so that the bottom printed image shows through the top layer like a water mark,I hope you can get the idea of what I mean from the photo.

Now I made this card this morning,I particularly wanted to enter this week's challenge over at Meljens,I love to be able to use the challenge blogs images whenever I can. I took photo's of the card,wrote it and popped in the post for a birthday on Wednesday,then this evening when I wrote my post and started to link to the challenge blogs I realised that although the card was for a birthday I'd omitted to put a greeting on the card and that was the challenge stipulation. AAAAghhhhh!!!!!!! don't you just hate it when that happens!!!! Oh well,I suppose I could always make another card for next weeks challenge,I've still two more new images to christen.
Thanks for stopping by,
