i thought this card was going to have A LOT more stuff on it. in fact, i was planning to pretty much fill all of the available space with butterflies, kind of like i did on this journal page. but try as i might, in the end, i could only get *one* butterfly on there. whaddaya gonna do, right?
oof--i suppose i should've started out by mentioning that i used laura's sketch #58 from 2S4Y, shouldn't i? ok, well, i did...here it is...naturellement it is awesome:
despite the complete absence of auxiliary butterflies, i did manage to get quite a bit of embellishment on this thing: there's vintage lace & battenburg flowers from nana hartpence's sewing box...some yummy pink bling...stick-on pearls...and a hand-stitched border. et voila--the first of the september birthdays is checked off my list! :)
