Birthday Wishes


Here is a card I made for my friend Penny whose birthday it was yesterday. I'm really into making cards that are fairly monotone with splashes of colour it seems at the moment- I dont plan it that way, its just how they end up lol

Heres a close up image of the card in an attempt to catch the sparkle of the butterfly and to save you using up finger clicking energy on enlarging the other photo lol ;0)....but it still doesnt look sparkly until you click on that one to make it bigger lol doh! Defeated lol

I love the monotone...I think it works sometimes better than slashes of colour...it certainly works with this card. Is the image of your friend? That makes it even more special.

Love the card Jo and using the hints of orange against the grey makes it really stand out. The butterfly does set it off.

Heather Robinson said...

This just reminded me that grey is not a colour used very often....and now I wonder why not! This is really stunning!
