Shaped edge

Hi Everyone, I am not at all motivated to do any cards or anything else come to that, but, as a follower, I had an email to let me know that Shirley's Cards had a freebie, so off I went to have a looky and this lovely design was offered. I decided that I would get off my backside, so to speak and get this card done today. Shirley has some wonderful designs here Shirley Young Designs too, worth a looky I assure you.

Anyhow onto my card, I cut it out of linen card 300g from Crafter Companion, so quite heavyweight and it cut so beautifully with my Cameo, using the default cutting recommendations.

 I then decided to add floral paper from my files and add plain to compliment the diamond shapes as Shirley did in her example. Less thinking for me LOL. After searching through my files I found this paper by Janet Scott at Pixelscrapper, which set the colour of the rest of the card.

I made a little change to the design by adding a freebie sentiment download from Crafting.co.uk which I felt matched the swirls of the butterfly. I printed the paper for the background, the butterfly and centre of the flowers, then cut it all out on the Cameo. After it was all put together, I added some silver gel pen to the flower centres and the butterfly and swirl. Just enough glimmer I felt.

I tried to get a good photo, but the sun has been rather lacking of late and this was the best I could do.
