Guest designer for Lexi challenge 117: birthdays

I'm privileged to join Lexi's creations challenge 117 today as a guest winner of a previous challenge. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the team and join in the challenge.

The background of this card was made with my gelli plate, acrylic paint and a stencil, over an offcut piece of paper lurking in my scraps box. Another offcut down the side (Hunkydory) with Hobbycraft ribbon with gems. The butterflies image was kindly supplied by Lexi - I coloured with spectrum noir pens and cut out with Spellbinder's 'marvellous squares' die, cutting out a piece of green background paper with the next die in the set. Once again, the paper was from my scraps box. Glittered flowers and sentiment from stash.

This is also for:
