   I was asked to make a male birthday card so it being summer what better than to relax in the garden.
   I matted and layered designer paper from Wild Rose studio's Blackberry Lane paper pack onto navy mirri card and white card. I then die cut navy and dark green mirri card using the Signature die butterfly flourish. I used the green mirri for the main part and filled in the butterflies wings with the navy.
   The stamped image 'Take it easy' from lili of the Valley was coloured using Promarkers with a light dusting of distress ink round three of the edges. I matted this onto navy mirri card cut out using a Spellbinders postage stamp die.
   The letters, also out of navy mirri card, were cut using Tattered Lace elegant alphabet dies and the words were cut out using Tattered Lace all occasions sentiments dies.

  I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Lili of the Valley -male or sporty
