a Butterfly and a Rose …

Butterfly and a Rose

Hey all,

I am just relishing my crafting time before work starts.. I will be away this weekend, this leaves me less than a full week to craft day long :p.

I am sharing with you something from my stash that is more than a year old, Practical Scrapper this week challenge, and I love it coz I have so much unused stuff over a year old :). And for this challenge I had chosen the beautiful Heart Winged Butterfly by Hero Arts. I have collected quite a fair bit of butterfly (everything)  and have not use this stamp :(. bad me. So I am glad to take this out..

Its a simple card, really and the colour combo is from Colour Create challenge. I had stamped the butterfly all over on the scalloped pink cardstock with Versamark Champagne. It kinda gives it a little shimmer shadow look. I had it stitched in two different pattern (getting adventurous here *wink* and adhere it to the brown cardstock. I tied a satin/rayon ribbon over and tied a white rose over. I had earlier stamped and embossed this butterfly with Tim Holtz Distress powder – tattered rose & aged mahogany mixed. and layered them and blinged it with white pearls. Quite like the look of it. I am a little crazy now over flowers/roses embellishes and ribbons…. 🙂

Have a great day. Thanks for stopping by 🙂
