For my card I used a beautiful set called Flutterby Delight. The butterflies have wonderful detailing and the flowers are so cute. There is also some adorable bugs in this set.
I used the mid-size butterfly and the flower that you see just above the sentiment. "sentiment was computer generated".

The butterfly was heat embossed by first stamping the image in Versamark and then using black EP and heating.

The flower was stamped in Memories/black ink.

The flowers in the main panel are part of the dp pattern. I used design paper by DCWV/La Creme.

To finish my card I added 3 faux black brads then topped them with tiny pearls. I also added pearls of different sizes to the main panel, the butterfly and the stamped flower.

I hope that you like this one, I'm very happy with how it turned out.


Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to hop over to my team mates blogs and leave a comment. There is some blog candy by Creative Design Boutique to be won.


Hugs always, Nicole
