Remembering with you.....

I used 3 book layers and mounted it all onto an a5 card which I trimmed to follow the shape.

Love playing with the layers of this butterfly
I had a sympathy card to make for a friend who lost her husband very suddenly. I wanted it to be a bit more special than usual so went for a boxed book type card. It has lots of layers underneath with more sentiments and flowers but I had meant to get my daughter to help photograph it when she got home but completely forgot and I have now delivered the card:(
Image - crafters companion lily stamp
Image - The Crafty Pad digi butterfly
Papers -  The Clipart Fairy
Sentiments - all computerised
Embellishments - decoupage flowers, pearls, glitter, ribbon
Medium - promarkers
Used a box template to make the box using my new blue pearlised card.
I would like to enter this into
Die Cut Dreams - use a digi and rubber stamp together
Top Tip Tuesday - all sentimental
Creative Craft Challenge - monochromatic madness
Papertake  Weekly Challenge - ribbon and pearls
Just Add Ink - just add monochrome
The Crafty Pad - something new (new card)
