Botanical Butterflies...


Oh, I just love butterflies & I just love how this card turned out! When I viewed the latest Fanatical about Botanical Challenge at Moxie Fab World, I knew exactly what I wanted to create with some beautiful goodies from the Your Memories Here Store. If you've noticed, I am posting for the YMH DT on a different day. From now on, I'm gonna be your Tuesday gal for the YMH Blog! That will free up my Sundays a little from so many posts & give all my DT projects a little more face time on my blog...yay!

Supplies:
Patterned Paper/Lace Ribbon/Rhinestones & Pearls - Prima
Glimmer Mist (pearl) - Tattered Angels
Distress Ink (walnut stain) - Tim Holtz
Cardstock - The Paper Studio
Ink - Staz On
Sentiment - Stampin' Up!
Ribbon Roses - American Crafts
Leaf - Making Memories
Doilie - Wilton
Adhesives - Glue Glider Pro, Pop Dots, Aileen's Fast Grab Tacky Glue

Now, about this card! First, you can grab this absolutely divinely gorgeous Prima paper HERE. It is so beautiful & perfect for "fussy cutting" like I did with the dimensional butterflies I added. Second, the card looks even prettier in person because of all the fabulous shimmer provided by the Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Pearl that I liberally spritzed all over; the shine is just gorgeous & I wish you could see it better! And last, those pretty roses are courtesy of some lovely AC ribbon that I trimmed up to get several separate flowers. I love how the look turned out. The ribbon is so versatile! I also trimmed up the adhesive Prima Crystals & Pearls to use on several spots. I almost always do this with my Prima swirls because not only does it give me more bang for my buck, but it also allows me to use the yummy product in just the right amounts! So, don't forget to visit the YMH Store for great bargains & the YMH Blog for amazing inspiration!

Now, we still have an amazing challenge going on over at Paper Issues Blog too! Just link up any of your fabulous paper projects, past or current, to our "Sweet" themed linking party. Anything you deem to be perfectly sweet is perfectly fine to link up; we are all about the inspiration at PI my crafty peeps!! You'll even find this beautifully sweet card linked up over there too, so pop on over HERE!! Now, I am off to get craftin' on a few other projects I need to work on this week so make sure to check back in a few days.
Until then, Happy Craftin'!

Oh My Word Crystal! This is STUNNING!!! I have always wanted to create a ribbon rose like this, but know it would look like I just closed my eyes and threw the ribbon on my card hoping for the best, hehehe!
Butterflies, beautiful pearls, lace... what could be better?!?!
