Easel shaper for Nan

I needed an 80th birthday card for a Nan (who's a young 80yrs), thought this one would be ok.  I used the easel shaper and the country chic alphabet from theclipartfairy.  I decoupaged the N and n to give added dimension.  Added a big glittery butterfly from my stash (but the background colour didn't match) so made my own from bp from the fairy again by cutting around original "peach coloured" one.

I added little pink sequins to bottom corners and finished off by making a box (instead of envelope) to put it in, using the same raspberry coloured bp as butterfly, to the box lid I also added in same country chic alphas, the numbers 80.

I'm pleased with the result and hope the recipient will be too.
