Butterflies For Pamela

Can you believe that today is the last day of May, and here in Australia it is also
the last day of autumn. I have lost track of the days of late, partly because I had a
short spell in hospital early this week. I have osteoporosis and arthritis, and once
again have a tiny fracture in my spine. I have to use a walking frame for a while, 
and am on quite strong painkillers which make me feel 'woozy'. This is not
 the first time I have been in this situation, and unfortunately it probably 
won't be the last. I do hate being like this!

On Monday one of my friends, Pamela, celebrates her birthday. I am pretty sure
she will be in Sydney with her family this weekend, so it is safe to show you
the card I made for her.
I absolutely adore this pretty paper, so I designed the card so that the
paper was the dominant element. Pamela is an avid gardener, so I
think she will love the flowers and butterflies.

Inside my card matches the front. Pamela loves purple.

The DP is heavily glittered, but I also smothered the die-cut butterflies,
and part of the greeting on the front with Stickles.

Paper - First Edition Spring Drop
Sentiment - Free with magazine
Dies - Spellbinders Scalloped Circles; Cheery Lynn Exotic Butterfly Small, Mini Dimensional Butterflies, Anastasia Border
Punch - EK Success Scalloped Corner
Embossing - Trellis (brand unknown)
Stickles - Star Dust

I really must be off to bed, so will say "good night, and thank you for visiting"
