Oh no!! I just linked back to PTI's challenge page and saw that it said to create a FLORAL embellishment. Darn! Too late to redo things now. Maybe Nichole will have pity on me if my name is actually chosen. : )
PTI's Embellies Challenge was just what I needed to use my new butterfly dies that I got last month. Of course, I feel guilty using SU! products for a PTI challenge.
Nothing original here. I've been seeing various butterflies on blogs for months now. I started out with PTI's new Pretty Pastels patterned paper and then cut more butterflies in coordinating cardstock. Then I stamped or embossed the cardstock butterflies, and sponged the edges on most. Added rhinestones, pearls or Clear Spica glitter pen.
The card uses Fall-to-Layout 73. Perfect for using embellies.
Sorry for the bad photos - late night without good light.
