Verve Release Challenge Number 3



Today's card is for the Verse Stamps April Release Challenge (VSAPR3) and the details can be found on SCS here . This card is going to a friend of mine having her birthday on Sunday. :)
I started with a white base, layered with some blue bazzill and layered again with one of my favourite papers by Little Yellow Bicycle (Delightful range). The horizontal layer is the reverse side of the same paper matted with the same blue bazzill and the edge punched with the Fiskars 'Lace' punch (that I got at ABSA). The square panel has been cut using rectangle nestabilities, the smallest square has been stamped using SU's Pocket Silhouettes in Tempting Turquoise (stamped off once), added a butterfly punched out with the Martha Stewart Royal Butterfly punch and some pearls for the body. (I really liked the look of this on my last card and decided to do it again for this card.) Finished off by adding some white grosgrain to the square, silver brads to the corner and a simple birthday sentiment to the bottom.
I just realised that this card is also suitable for the Flutter by Wednesday Challenge to use a butterfly or fairy and punches or die cuts!!! :)
That's all for now, thanks for visiting!! :)
