Butterfly dreams...


Hi Lovelies,

Tonight I'm entering in my first challenge for this year (YAY).


Click here to go to the latest challenge over at Try Stampin' on Tuesday.  I am really pleased with they way my card came out.  I don't do simple normally so this for me is wonderful.  I love the colours, the glitter and the fact that this is all made from scraps or left overs.  So gotta love that.  I also tried a new technique for me - the circle frame.  I can't believe how easy they are to make with the nesties and my new Big Shot.  

When Helen was up we went to Craft Online.  I brought some more "Supplies" that I couldn't live with out.  One of which is this gorgeous Distress Ink (from Ranger) Crushed Pistachio.  I used it to colour the Butterfly, the circle and the thin strip of c/s behind the pearls.  I also sprayed them with my new favourite mist from Kaisercraft - Kaiser Mists white.  I added Star Dust Stickles to the dots on the wings and the shimmer it adds in real life is amazing.  I just wish my photography could do it justice.  The sentiment is a Kaisercraft clear stamp from Enchanted Garden.  

Thanks for stopping by.
