Pretties Wednesday: Flutterbies!

Two weeks ago Jessica challenged the Prettie Girls to make a card including a butterfly! Easy peasy! Especially when you have some brand spankin' new butterfly-delicious designer paper!

I kept my layout pretty simple this week so that the paper would shine through on this card (gotta be able to see all of the butterflies). I used another croheted flower - I wasn't kidding when I said I loved using them on everything! :) The last element I added was some pretty embroidered ribbon from May Arts.

I did add some shimmer to Sophia's skirt with Cotton Candy Shimmerz. I love how quickly this stuff dries... especially since wet paint is just asking for a clumsy moment! ;)

For more fabulous butterfly creations check out the rest of the Prettie Girls:

Finally, here is a better picture of the ribbon treatment. Oh, and since I thought a sentiment would take away from the butterflies I decided to just add one to the inside of the card!

Stamps: Sophia Ballerina. Paper: Pretty in PInk, Chocolate Chip, PTI Select White, Jolie Chocolat designer (SEI). Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic markers. Other: pink crochet thread, linen thread, designer button, vintage brads, dimensionals, May Arts ribbon, Cotton Candy Shimmerz.
