I thought the colour scheme would make a lovely card, with the butterfly offset against the flowers and their green foliage. The butterfly topper I found on Sharon Duncan's "Beautiful Butterflies" CD isn't quite a Small Tortoiseshell, although it is similar, but the colours were just right for my card.
I decided to keep the outside quite simple, with the topper and a little bit of layering, and a single layer of decoupage. This, I hope, means that the recipient will have a surprise when they open the inside and find patterned paper (also printed from the CD), a mini topper used as a stopper, some gorgeous sparkly bling to represent morning dew - the gem strips are from The Hand Made Card Company - and a birthday greeting.
