Silver Sequined Butterfly Card

August 12th, 2010

I love black and white theme. It looks so sophisticated it makes an ideal black and white birthday card. My friend Claire from Touch of Craft was selling blocks of patterned paper. She had a beautiful black and white set which included floral vellum.

Claire used this gorgeous floral vellum in one of her cards which made me buy the black and white pattern paper block. The backing paper behind the padded sequin butterfly is also a vellum from the block. I wanted to carry the floral theme on with the white floral grosgrain ribbon mounted onto black organza ribbon.

I highlighted the vellum with glue and shimmer dust. Got this idea from Claire so all credit to her.
