Beautiful Butterfly

Hello, hope you're enjoying your day!

I have a lovely card to share with you this afternoon!
Right out of the garden...

Stamps: butterfly from The Cottage Market,
sentiment: Little Yellow Bicycle
Paper: SU! cs, MME dp
Ink: SU! stamp pad
Other: Zva Creative pearls, vintage seambinding,
Nesties, sparkly flower from stash, emb tool.

A few months back, Andrea shared a lovely sheet of butterflies to download.  After I fussy cut this little flutter, I ran my (large) metal ball embossing tool around the backside of it to 'bowl' out the wings a bit...adds a little dimension so it doesn't just look like flat paper.

Today @ Digital Tuesday, we are looking for your butterfly projects!  Create whatever you like, just make sure to add a digital element!  

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Beautiful card, Maria! I love the mix of papers and love the scalloped circle and banner strip. That shabby bow is adorable, and I really like the dimension you added to the butterfly wings. Fabulous stamping, too!
