My attempt at the SC03 challenge and I'm v pleased with the results.
I have used a background paper printed onto pearlescent paper from the Butterfly Bliss CD rom and rather than print in colour I have printed in black & white. The images are two different stamps but from the same set which I have embossed in silver and then just coloured the leaves and the butterflies with a black Sakura Stardust Pen. I then glittered the tops of the tulips with extra fine white glitter. I have matted & layered both images onto silver mirror card and then onto black card.
Instead of the paper band at the bottom I have used some silver mesh and then just stuck a silver butterfly peel off to the spare backing paper and cut it out. I used silicone glue to stick the butterfly to the card as I wanted it to be 3D. Finally, I added a small plaque using black cardstock with the Happy Birthday sentiment.
