Bouquets & Butterflies for Mum

This was actually made as a Mother's Day card but would, I think, work equally as well for a birthday. I was very keen to try out my new Memory Box Butterfly Vine border. It is so pretty and cuts beautifully in the Grand Calibur.

I used an 8x8 inch scalloped card blank. I then matted the four squares of Dovecraft DP onto one square of deep pink card and fixed that to the card base. The topper was made with a Lili of the Valley Cute Square which I matted onto the largest sized Spellbinders Lacey Square*. The letters were cut using a Cuttlebug Olivia Alphabet and the butterfly border and gems added to finish off.
