MFP Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge 255

Mark's Finest Papers Speedy Fox  and Friends Challenge 255
- Butterfly Birthday Card -

Here's my sample card as a design team member for Mark's Finest Papers! Thanks for looking and head on over to JOIN IN the challenge fun!

Here's my sample for Mark's Finest Papers design team.

I started this card by stamping my butterflies and coloring them with Copic markers, adding a sparkle gel pen for...yes...sparkle. I then cut the edge around the bottom of the butterflies. I used white ribbon and colored it with a Copic marker...I LOVE my Copics!! Add a couple of die cuts for my sentiment, a couple of gems and the front is complete! I took a scrap piece of my designer paper and added that to the inside, but low enough to show behind the butterflies. I also stamped a butterfly for the inside as well. Thanks for looking!

I used MFP stamp set "Bearded Iris".
