Birthday Banner

Last year I posted an idea on youtube, a request to create a banner for a 50th birthday of a fellow youtuber in March this year - a secret project :) Ten people signed up and created their own banner, every one of them is unique. The birthday girl likes purple and butterflies and that is what we had as a brief... for the rest is was just enjoy and play :)

Here is the banner I made:

I crumbled up some tissue paper, sprayed it with the Cosmic Shimmer Mists and glued it to the chipboard to create a background. It's a great technique to create something different and it is very easy to do! For the wings I used the Sizzix Butterfly Die which I cut apart and only used the bottom part of the wings. It's one of my favourite dies :)
