Today's Ways to Use It challenge is to use our birth flower or birth stone. My birthday is in June - though the link gives pearls as the birth stone, alexandrites are also the June birth stone, a gem which comes in green, purple or pink - I've had several pieces of jewelry with pink alexandrite type gems given to me over the years. The card was made using a flourish stamp and a die-cut, copic coloured butterfly. I added some gems and a border but kept lots of white space.

What a beautiful card. Your colors and coloring on the butterfly are amazing. The clean design of your card really highlights the pretty butterfly. You used such a pretty flourish stamp and the gems are the perfect addition. It turns out that Susie australia and I share the same june 29 b-day. I will have to remember your twist on the gemstone since pearls are not my fav.
