This was a very quick card to make.  I used silver mirri-paper for the first layer and then covered this with a printed background paper that I designed using My Craft Studio.  I cut out two butterflies for the topper and shaped the top one to add dimension.  This was attached using Pinflair Foto-Glue.  The sentiment was taken from a peel-off set.  All corners were rounded using the X-Cut corner rounder punch which I can thoroughly recommend.

90 Best Wishes

This is the card I made for my Gran's 90th birthday last December.  I ran a daisy embossing folder through the Cuttlebug for the pattern on the left-hand side.  The image was achieved by using the nail varnish remover technique.  I photocopied the photo in black and white and then used nail remover to transfer it onto lemon coloured paper.  The flowers have been glittered in the centres and at the edges.  I used a gold peel-off sentiment to finish the card.  I also added a gold border peel-off to the side of embossed paper which was done after the photograph was taken.
