Not a christmas card

This was a birthday card I made for BIL whose birthday was end of November but with all the Christmas challenges I never got it blogged until now.I made a centre step card and used a Gus Bugaboo image and sentiment,coloured with promarkers and added sepia glossy accents,I used sepia tones and the butterflies were cut from Tim Holtz papers,the B.paper was from stash and the vintage elements were craft mag freebies.
