RS #211 & PP #291 ~ Congratulations!

Hi friends! Hubby went on an evening photography outing so I had some extra crafty time! I haven't played along at Retro Sketches or The Paper Players in forever. I made this card combining both challenges.


I used a panel of patterned paper by MME then dry embossed the lower portion of my card base. A vellum overlay holds the Reverse Confetti sentiment and provided a place for my layered butterfly to land upon. I felt it needed just a little something else, so I added a few pearls. We have a late May wedding that I think this will be perfect for!


I'll be back tomorrow with the winner of my Sweet Pea Stamp Set giveaway winner! Until then ~Lisa
