Blue, Green and Yellow

This week on Flutterby Wednesdays we are invited to make a card that is blue, green and yellow; of course, it also needs to have a fairy or butterfly.

For me, maybe 90% of the time spent making a card is all mental.  I hash out what might work and sometimes try several things that don't work before coming up with something that makes sense.  Ah, but that's part of the fun, right?

So, after much thinking and some experimenting, I finally finished the card.  I embossed some blue paper with a polka dot EF from Cuttlebug. The next layer is a piece of yellow paper with a white die cut lattice piece that was made from a Spellbinders die. Next is a "Happy Birthday" sentiment mounted with pop dots for a little three-dimensional effect.  I tied a blue ribbon around the yellow piece and made a bow, then attached it to the blue background.  The flower is just several layers of graduated sizes of cut out flower shapes, secured in the center with a yellow brad.  They are cut from white paper and inked with yellow ink around the edges of the top layers of the flower.  Underneath the flower is a Cheery Lynn leaf flourish made from the Fanciful Flourish die.  It is attached to the background with a dimensional foam piece.  Of course, it would not be complete without the lacy little Pippi Butterfly from a Memory Box die, which is attached with a tiny piece of sticky dimensional foam.  The whole thing is mounted on white cardstock cut to an A2 size.

I'm going to give this to my beautiful daughter who is having a birthday soon.

Here is the card:
