Hi butterfly

Finally, a new project to share with you!
This one I made yesterday, after I got my goodies from SSC - Dear Lizzy ribbon and Tattered Angels mist, and than using some products I found at Michaels the day before, and my inspiration was the current Embellish challenge.

From Michaels, I used a decorative cloud edged scissors, which Tracy finally coaxed me into getting with all the pretty cards she made using it (oh, and $.50 price helped a little too ;)). The half pearls are by Recollection - yay! My local Michaels and Joann's didn't carry any half pearls until now, so I had to buy all my half pearls online, which was expensive because I didn't have coupons and had to pay shipping.

Instructions: Cut cardstock base, brown paper, and yellow paper. Cut top of yellow paper with cloud scissors. Using another sheet, cut yellow paper to fit chipboard letters, adhere, and then spread nail polish over for shimmer. Sand edges. Spray with glimmer mist. 
Stamp butterflies and cut out; add half pearls.
Adhere scalloped yellow paper to cardstock, and than add brown paper. Adhere letters to brown paper, than add floral ribbon near the bottom of the card. Add half pearls to butterfly centers, and half pearls to top of brown paper.

Thanks for popping in!
