Gentle as a Butterfly

Hello everyone...hope you had a great holiday weekend and are ready for a short work week...whoohoo!!! I have to work today so this well be short and sweet.....you know how working one or two days a week wears me out...LOL!!! Anyway....

I made this card last night while watching the Bachelorette (I just love reality shows). The papers are from Pink Paislee's Butterfly Garden and the stamps are from Rubbernecker's Butterflies are Free set were used to create this shabby vintage looking design. The chipboard frame was colored with a Creamy Caramel marker and Stickles was added to the edges. The butterfly was stamped on paper from the same collection, glittered up with Stickles, cutout, and adhered over the corrugated butterfly. Sewing, seam binding, pearls, and twine finish it off.

This is also for a few challenges:
1. Incy Wincy Designs - nature
2. Allsorts Challenge - things with wings
3. Fun With Shapes - everything must sparkle
4. Wags and Whiskers - stitches

Thanks for stopping by....have a great day!!!

Ahhhh, this is exquisite, Joan, i love the 3D butterfly on top of the butterfly paper, gives the impression of layers of butterflies. And the sentiment is a very beautiful one, I don't think cards come much better than this. Lovely to look at! CoB
