Parchment Birthday

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Are you enjoying the Easter break?
Hubby and I are having a wonderful weekend.
The Easter bunny has been good to us this weekend too.

I sure have been in the parchment/Groovi mood these past couple of weeks.

Today another parchment card, the pattern is one I have had in my stash for a while.
The butterfly was made with the Butterfly Groovi plate from Clarity Stamp

Step by Step

1. 7 x 7 cream square card which I have matted and layered brown embossed floral card.
2. The parchment topper is the pattern which I have embossed the back of the parchment, using the Pergamano half circle pricking tool went around the circle then cut out to create the scalloped edging.
3. I cut out yellow card using SB scalloped circle die and attached the parchment with brads.
4. I then used the Butterfly Groove plate to create the butterfly, adhered to card with Pergamano clue and added brown gems to the body.
5. To finish off I added the sentiment and gold pearl gems to the 3 flowers.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Hi Linda what a gorgeous card I love to see Parchment craft. And your design is wonderful.
I first learnt do it when I were on MCS DT and I went through phase that every card I did had to have some Embossing on it some way.
