Paper Lovin' Gals #16... It's a Flutter!

It's Thursday and time for another great challenge at the Paper Lovin' Gals.. This week we have a gorgeous photo of some Butterflies for your inspiration!

I choose the Butterflies of course and I went with the Pinks in this photo.. I have to say my card took a very long time. Nothing was coming together the way I wanted it to and it became 4 different projects. I tore one apart after another and started over. I think my end result was worth it though.

My card base is 4x4.. I started with a piece of Rich Razzleberry and then I added a layer or Water Color paper. I stamped the Butterfly images from the SU set  Precious Butterflies. I stamped the images in Regal Rose & Rich Razzleberry  and then I went back in with my Aqua Painter and smoothed them out a bit. I did the same on the Main panel with the stem image.

I stamped the sentiment from the same set in Black ink and then I added the butterflies from the Beautiful Wings Embosslit. For the pearls I just used some Sharpies to color them pink & purple. I also added some white Baker's Twine.

Make sure you head over to the Paper Lovin' Gals blog and see what the rest of the Design Team created this week.. And we hope you will play along with us.
