Fruity Butterfly

Well it was very sunny earlier but now it seems not so. I'm trying to get myself healthy again and have dusted off my juice machine and am drinking fresh juices every morning. So here's a fruity creation to match:

I was very much inspired by a gorgeous Birthday card I received from my friend Susie and had to have a go at making something similar. I've used Melon Mambo and cut a Top Note die and folded in half to make my card base. Next I added a strip of Basic Black narrow grosgrain ribbon and a sentiment from Thank You Kindly. The large Daffodil Delight flower is die cut with the Fun Flowers die and then popped back through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice embossing folder. I decorated a piece of Whisper White scrap card with matching colours and the orange from Tart and Tangy. This and the black flat butterfly have been die cut too. The pearls started off as pearls but I daubed black Stayzon ink to transform them.

I can't stop as Blake is snoring away and Zac is attempting to prod him and to be honest - I like the quiet!!
