Something Special.

Hi again.
I said that I had been crafting a bit today. This is my second posting and is of a card that I was asked to make for a special lady's 80th birthday. Now I must admit I did have a little bit of a brain freeze on what to do for her but every lady loves flowers so plumped for this creation.

Unfortunately it doesn't look as good as it does in real life honest - the scalloped backing papers are actually a maroon / purple colour which is quite striking against the box which now looks rather dull :(
Inside I lined the box lid with black and a flash of the maroon /purple showing around the edge.
challenges:-
Papertake Weekly - Shiny Sparkly & special.
Cute Card Thursday - Someone Special.
Items used:-
Angel Fibres for the butterfly which shines holographically, pearls, nesties, ms frond punch, flowers from Hobbycraft and stash covers in pearl glimmer mist.
If anyone has any special tricks for taking good pictures with a basic camera / camera phone please feel free to let me know - can't afford a professional camera yet!
thanks for stopping by.
