DCM Little Extra- 60's Inspired...

The mid week extra was to get retro & be inspired by the 60's...... Technically I'm very much a 70's girl, despite being born 1967 & looking at the colours & fashions of the 60's, I'm very glad!!
I drew my inspiration for this card from the vivid tangerine orange & the abstract designs & patterns of the decade, which did carry on into the 70's, but was the brainchild of the flower power generation.
My butterflies are tea bag folded. The antenna are small orange & tortoiseshell coloured beads. I stamped the flowers in bright orange directly onto the square blank card & 4 small orange eyelets hold a piece of plain vellum over the top.
The greeting was created in Wordart.
