A birthday card today, which I hope has arrived at its destination, although you never know with the UK post. I'm still waiting for a handmade anniversary card which was sent almost two years ago and it only had to travel about 5 miles! LOL!
I started by covering the front of a 7" x 5" card blank with silver pearlised card. The embossing folder is by Craft Concepts, 'Dragonfly'. As the folder was only 5" x 4", I decided to use four pieces of embossed card and arrange the pieces leaving a space between each one. The dragonfly is a Spellbinders die, 'Dreamy Dragonfly', which comes in two parts and used snippets of pearlised blue and silver card. The circles are MB 'Stitched Circle' dies and I used a die from The Works for the stitched rectangle.

When I was writing this post earlier today, I thought it would have been perfect for the current Butterfly Challenge, which is to use the colour Wedgewood Blue, if I had used a butterfly rather than a dragonfly. So, I decided to make another similar card, but with a butterfly.
I didn't have any of the blue pearlised card left from the previous card, but found a few snippets of a slightly paler blue pearlised card. The colour is probably closer to Wedgewood Blue anyway. I don't know the name or make of the embossing folder as there are no marking on it. I made a Get Well card this time, to go into my box of ready-made cards.
