Linzy's B-day Card

Yesterday I showed you John's b-day card and today...is Linzy's.


Linz is my 3rd daughter, John's older sister. Her name is really spelled Lindsey but sometime during her childhood it got shortened to Linz...thus the new spelling: Linzy. She is a total "outdoors" girl who LOVES insects, animals, plants...everything "outdoorsy"! She has several collections of mounted butterflies and moths that are absolutely beautiful! So I figured a butterfly b-day card was quite appropriate. She is also very artsy so I knew she'd like the non-traditional colors I chose too. The dark brown, which looks almost black, has a soft metalic sheen, as does the lighter brown underneath.

Ingredients:
Dies - Cheery Lynn Designs "Lace Faerie Queen, sm" (w/Angel Wing), 
Spellbinders "Fleur de Lis Squares" (over a year old)
Sentiment Stamp - Woodware "Leafy Swirls"
Card stock - DCWV "Latte" & "Immortal Love",
textured white is from my stash
Pearls - Pizzazz Aplenty & Kaisercraft

Challenges:
