My First 8x8 Card


I thought I'd have a go at making an 8x8 card.I saw the instructions on someone's blog but can't remember where now.If anyone knows please let me know and I'll link to it.
I used pink cardstock to make the basic card.The PP is Papermania double sided card. the butterfly image is a Penny Black one which I mounted onto pink card and scalloped plum coloured Bazzill.The pink and plum border I got bought in Hobbycraft. Flower is a Flora Doodle from Joanna Sheen, with a Papermania pearl brad in the middle and some white pearls behind it. The sentiment was written on my Robo and mounted onto pink card and plum Bazzil. I just need to add some glittery bits and it'll be finished. It's for my MIL's birthday. I just have the small problem of not having an envelope big enough for it! I've bought some A3 paper so will have a go at making one.
