Its my Mother in Laws birthday soon so though I had better get on and make her a card. This is especially as she never received the Christmas card we sent, think it fell into the Royal Mail black hole somewhere. I used a mixture of EI essence of nature stamp plate and the crackle stamp is a crafty indivuals one. I stamped the butterfly tree on the main image then coloured the butterflies in with copic markers. I then went over the top of the butterflies with glossy accents and although I don`t think you can see from the scan, I added glamour dust glitter into the glossy accents while it was still wet so the butterflies have a beautiful indiresscent glitter to them. I used three colours of distress ink - spun sugar and victorian velvet blended round the butterfly tree and then victorian velvet and pumice stone to stamp the folliage along the bottom.  Well had better shuffle off now to get on and make more February birthday cards as there are quite a few. Thanks for looking
