Pretty Butterfly Paper

Hi everyone! Please excuse the photo of my card but I found it really hard to take a photo of this easel card LOL being a photographer has never been my strongest point (must steal Sue P's maestro of a hubby to do them...he takes fab pics!!!) I used this beautiful paper that is from Stamping Dragon Designs and with the snippets left over I made some bows and butterflies and cut out the happy birthday with a free die from a craft magazine...and I may have put some blobs here and there LOL Well it has been really gorgeous today and my brother came home last night for a very quick visit, was great to see him today..he's driving down to London to pick up his new car on Thursday then he's off to Eastbourne to visit our youngest brother and his family..then him and my sister-in-law are driving back to Austria..so I'll be missing her till she gets back in about 4 weeks. I hope this lovely weather lasts..think 'his lordship' is going for another swim tomorrow would be silly not to take advantage of the sunshine wouldn't it:) TFL and lots of hugglesssssssss Sue xxxxxxxxxxxx

This is a pretty card Sue, I love your papers and gorgeous die cut bows. I think easel cards are definitely the most difficult cards to photograph.
