Orange - 2 Papers Recipe Card

Light Grey Cardstock
MYmemories Patterened paper, Orange
Paper Passion, Shimmer & Shine

Copper Craft wire
Star-clip - Orange
2 Navy Blue buttons

The inspiration for this card came from the beautiful MYmemories paper, it has little birds and butterflies embossed and glittered on it, in a tone on tone manner. And the paper in the front is one of my favourite pieces from the 'Paper Passion' collection. Only 4 embellishments kept it really simple and emphasis the birds and butterflies in the background. The copper wire is keeping it all together. So fly high....... 

P.S: I havn't forgotten the tattered edges.
