Krafty Karen's birthday card

Now Karen's birthday has passed, I can share the card I made :-) It is the biggest card I have ever made (A4 card folded in half), in fact I didn't have an envelope large enough and had to put it into a jiffy bag to give to her!

The papers, image and sentiment are from Making Cards magazine and this is an adaptation of one of the example designs. I wrapped some black lace around the spine of the card, used narrow pink ribbon as a border between the two papers, and added some gems for a bit of sparkle. The tassel and butterfly are actually from earrings bought at the bling-y jewellery shop in Eastbourne - the tassel is attached with a brad and the butterfly stuck down with Matte Accents.
