Penny Black - Butterflies and Birds

Hello Blog friends - this beautiful image by Penny Black Inc. just makes me happy...it bring the beauty of nature and all creatures great and small right into my Studio as I created it.

The background paper has been embossed using the  Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine and the         Lovely Lattice Spellbinder® M-Bossabilities™ folder .

The image has been coloured using the IMAGINECrafts®/Tsukineko® Memento Markers™.
and then cut/ embossed using the  Fleur De Lis Squares Nestabilities® Decorative Element Die and popped up using Scrapbook by Adhesives by 3L - 3D Foam Squares.  E-Z Runner have been used on this card.  The bling is from Want2Scrap

The pink panel  has been embossed using the Cabbage Roses Spellbinder® M-Bossabilities™ folder.  A Seam Binding bow and paper rose has been adheres using Liquid Glue.
