This card is for the Teapot Party and for Vickie who is having some health issues.
Vickie likes pink and Asian themed cards. I have some Japanese washi papers that I bought in Japan a couple of years ago and this was the last pink coloured one left. I decided to go with a card that showed most of the beautiful design and gold.
After die cutting the butterfly in the centre of the paper, I decided to also die cut a panel of gold CS. The gold butterfly was inlaid back into the panel and the Japanese paper butterfly plonked on top. I also die cut 2 other butterflies out of other Japanese papers. Added bling and done.
I decided not to stamp a sentiment for the front so Vickie could enjoy all of the paper as the gold is so beautiful. A sentiment was stamped inside and more butterflies.
TFL. Happy day

Oooh, how pretty! The Washi paper is gorgeous and the butterflies, esp the center one, look lovely over the paper. I agree with you about not covering up the cover with a sentiment that can just as easily go inside.

This is so gorgeous. I am glad you didn't stamp over a spec of this paper. I love how the butterflies are there and you see them but they also blend into the paper so beautifully...just like nature. What a treat for Vickie to get this beauty. So glad you had that one piece left. Awesome card,
