Butterfly & Pearls

Yes I know.....I have been a bad blogger again! But I did manage to create this card. I decided it was time to start using those beautiful pearls from the Pretties Kit. I am terrible, if I really like something, I don't use it....I am sure I am not alone here, now am I. Come on confess how many of you stoke your stash then put it away for that special project, that just never happens!!

This card is made using Bashful Blue, Ballet Blue and Night of Navy card stock. The panel is the 'It's Beautiful' Jumbo Wheel, with Night of Navy ink. Pearls from the Pretties kit have been placed in the centre of some of the flowers. The little butterfly is Cuttlebug cut and emboss butterflies. I then sponged some Night of Navy ink onto the embossing to highlight the pattern. Again pearls from the Pretties kit have been used on the body of the butterfly. Sentiment is in Night of Navy from the Hostess Level 1 stamp set 'Best Yet'.

I have made another card today, but that is for the Colour Combo challenge over at In Love With Stamping on Thursday, so I can't show you that just yet. Hoping to get more stamping done tomorrow...

Thanks for stopping by.....
