Parchment butterfly birthday card

This is another card for the butterfly and turquoise lover!! I have used my Groovi plates for this project. I have done several layers. The first layer included the butterfly and a circle, I used my semi circle Pergamano tool to go around the circle. I then used my Pergamano scissors to cut a picot edge, well I tried my best!. I did my white work on the butterfly then coloured it with Spectrum Noir pencils. Using the circle and sprig Groovi plates I have made the next layer. I cut a straight edge around this circle with a standard scissors. I did my white work on the leaves and then coloured them with Spectrum Noir pencils. I then die cut a scalloped circle with a Xcut die. The next layer is also made using the circle Groovi plate. The centre of the circle is plain but I have used my semi circle Pergamano tool and scissors as I did on the butterfly layer. In the centre of each of this semi circles on this layer I have embossed a small dot. I used Pergamano glue the first two layers but I used double sided tape on the back of scalloped circle because you cant see it anyway. I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with turquoise card and white embossed card, I embossed the white card with an Embossalicious folder. I shaped the corners of these layers with a Tonic punch. I have cut a turquoise scalloped oval with a Go Kreate die to mount a personalised sentiment.
