This card is made up with bits and pieces from earlier projects(or playing in other words)  Saw a challenge on Technique Tuesday for shaving foam paper so the daisy panel is stamped and embossed  on a piece of it ,coloured with mica paints. The background paper is from a gelli plate play overstamped with a very old Hero stamp and the butterfly was in a box of bits and pieces. I really need to use up some of this stuff but I just seem to accumulate more and more ............
