I absolutely love this image, well I love all of the amazingly tallented Ching-Chou Kuik images available from The Crafty Purple Frog, they are so beautiful. I layered the decoupaged image onto a scalloped circle die cut that I inked whilst still in the die.
The shaped pearls that I have used on the butterflies were part of a set that I bought from The Works for £1, when I bought the pack I wondered what I would use them for but it was such a bargain I bought it anyway, I'm so glad I did now. I finished the card and then decided it looked a bit top heavy so I added the row of pearls at the bottom and it looks a lot better. Full details of everything I have used are listed below.
This is the inside of my card, you can see the decoupage a bit better in this photograph:
The ribbon was some white seam binding that I coloured with a black ProMarker.
