Correspondence Card Vines and Flowers

I wanted to play with the Dodo wire some more and this card gave me the perfect opportunity.  I have fussy cut out one of the pages from the correspondence collection and inked the edges. I had a lot of difficulty working out what color card stock to use and in the end went with craft as it wasn't going to overshadow the flowers and butterflies. I painted my laser cut frame cream and using some off cut paper filler the inside of the frame. The dodo Vin wire I loosely wrapped around itself in the size I wanted and then wrapped flowers around the Dodo Vine Wire. The Transparency butterflies were glued to the vine wire with Helmar 450 glue and holds very well. I added a few of Finnabair's metal trinkets, Tim holtz mini gears and a Vintaj Diamond filigree charm in the background to create a bit of contrast against the ivory paper flowers and the oatmeal coloured flower. I added the turquoise rose flowers (bl paper) for a little colour pop.
