Inspiration for this card started with the need for a green birthday card, so once I had settled on these papers, I opted to get all inky with the edges to bring the quite modern papers in line with the etched style of the butterfly image. I wanted to pop up the wings of the butterfly with a double impression, but instead of extending the wings on the already large image, I cut down the second pressing and made a smaller version of the butterfly and gave it centre placement.
Thanks, Edna.

Beautiful, Edna! I love how you layered the smaller butterfly over the larger one. Your colors are so rich and warm.
