I have had the images used in this card since 2009, they come from a calendar by Daniel Merriam which I fell in love with and had hanging up for a couple of years. I thought now was a good time to use them. I went searching through my "zillions" of backgrounds (all filed away waiting to be used after I had a tidy-up fit late last year...hehe) to find something that went with the images I had selected. The background actually has a sparkle to it which was achieved with Glimmer Mists. I hand cut the template from a Deluxe Cards template (so please excuse the wiggly edges as even when cutting along a metal ruler I seem to be able to cut a crooked line!). The edge punch is by Martha Stewart. The butterflies were cut using Sullivan's punches. The card stock is Bazzil.
