LIM week 125 -Happy Birthday

Over on Less is More the challenge is birthday this week, as it is Jen's birthday today. So the challenge is to make her a birthday card she will like.She said she likes butterflies, cats and fish, now I managed the butterflies and cat but I thought maybe the fish would be pushing it a bit for CAS!
I've used MCS and their Silhouettes with Style cdrom for the butterflies. I shrunk a full A4 size design sheet down and put over the top a shrunken Mo Manning "Patience" digi. I recoloured them to shades of blue and then added a vignette around the whole thing. I punched a butterfly from the full size sheet and resized it placing it at the edge of the image. Then I cropped a piece of the full size paper and placed behind the whole image. The font is a download called "Jane Austen" it's my new fav font. It was free, but can't remember where from, sorry.
I then cut around the printed work with a labels 28 spellbinder and tied a little bakers twine before mounting it onto the base card.
