It is that green time a year when many leprechauns and shamrocks have beem seen about so my card is green in honor of the Irish and in the start of spring (March 20th)! Working on the card brought back a childhood memory of my Mother telling us how her and her brother attending the same small rural school in Alberta would give different nationalities when asked what they were.They had Irish and English in their heritage, so Mom would say she was Irish and my Uncle would say English. The teachers although amused would ask them to sort it out. They both (Mom and Uncle)would stick to their chosen nationality and in my Mom's case Irish she remained for most of her life; she switched to Canadian in the later years:D
This was first time I framed a stamp with ribbon and it was surprisingly easy. I did follow these instructions from a tutorial on the StampArtic site so that helped a lot. The flowers are hand made. The beautiful butterfly is from Fairy Dust Crafts and is designed by Lexi. The largest butterfly is layered and all three are attached with glue dots for dimension . All versions of the butterfly were coloured, cut out and layered with crystal effects.
