Monochromatic Birthday Card

Funny how a person starts out with one idea and it completely evolves into something else.  I started with Graphics 45 paper that has Peter Rabbit on it and ended up turning it over and using the back side print instead.

Made this card for an especially nice lady that is always looking out for me!  Thanks Jackie!

There was no stamping involved except on the inside, but did make use of some terrific dies and punches.  Used the Spellbinders Parisian border and motif and Punch Bunches Groovy Flower, Twig, Dahlia Petals, Daisies and Butterfly punches.
Sponged around the edges of everything with Versamark ink and added liquid applique to the petals and some pearls.

This design was inspired by Elly's work.  She's from Norway and makes such beautiful creations with a monochromatic theme and uses lots of dies and punches.  Thank you Elly for sharing your work!

Enjoy every day!!!

Love it Patti Jo. I ahve thought of doing one of these types of cards myself. i don't think it would look as nice as yours. Looooove the color and the paper is gorgeous. I love how the butterflies blend into the background. The borders look great.
What color Versafine ink did you use for around the edges?? It blends so well. I like how you put that liquid applique on the edges of the middle flower. Great job my friend. Jackie must hae loved it.
hugs Maz

Patti Jo, I love your use of those Spellbinders dies. I have them too, but haven't used them. Sometimes I have great plans for them before I buy them, but once I actually have them in hand, I forget my plans and don't know what to do with them...LOL.
Beautiful work.
