Fancy Butterfly

Well.......pretty fancy for me anyway.  I've really been slacking lately on getting some cards completed and then posted.  I'm trying to do better but so often there's just not enough hours in the day.

I used a couple of Memory Box dies - the greenery that's actually white so guess I'll have to call it whitery,  and the Piestra Tile die on the side.  The blue under the tile die was done sponging different shades of blue distress inks.  The butterfly, from Impression Obsession, was cut out of card stock and then I added the vellum overlay.  Pearls were added on the butterfly and "whitery" and a sentiment from SU.

I'll try to get back over here sometime soon but it may not be until next week.  If not, hope everyone has a great weekend.

I'll enter this in the challenges at Crafter's Cafe (Get Well Soon), Little Red Wagon (Die Cutting) and at Pixie's Crafty Workshop (Snippets).

Thanks for stopping by......
Lynn

Magnificent, Lynn! I love the vellum layer on the butterfly. Great idea sponging the different shades of blue on CS. I'm going to have to use that idea. :-D
