AIF078 Anything Goes

We have a new challenge for you today at AI Factory and this week we have an Anything Goes theme. Can't get much easier than that can it?

We're showcasing a fabulous Clipart set of Flourish designs available the AI Store here.
You get 12 different images featuring swirls and butterflies, they really are gorgeous. The store is being re-vamped at the moment, a lot of time has been spent on it and it looks great but please bear with us whilst the products are being loaded back into the store.

Now for the details of my card. I have used the largest of the images from the pack which features 3 butterflies on it. I have cut a second layer of flutterbies to attach over the base, I have left the wings flapping to create the illusion they are flying.

I have used Sakura glitter pens throughout to colour the design so it has a gentle shimmer all over.
The base of the card has been covered with a glittered cardstock from the Penny Lane collection by My Minds Eye. I love the purples and greens together throughout the pad. I used a scrap of purple card and punched with the Fiskars treading water punch, adding a piece of green ribbon from my stash and a bow to match. Finally the sentiment is from an Anita's die cut sheet of assorted designs. The finished size of the card is A5

Hi Mandy you are just too eagle eyed but I'm not even going to mention to my son as I doubt he or his friends will notice, thats what you get for colouring and watching the royal wedding at the same time, lol.
