Avery Elle Butterflies

Happy Monday! Have you seen all the fabulous sneaks from CHA? Oh my, I spent the weekend wishing I had been there!  I can't wait for all the launches :)

My project today features the beautiful Avery Elle Butterflies!

I love butterflies but this set... oh my! I cut my base panel with the Avery Elle Wonky Stiches Rectangle from some Lawn Fawn Guava Cardstock (Oh this color, I just love it).  I used my Misti to stamp my butterflies with VersaMark Ink and used gold embossing powder on them.  I really like the way they turned out!  I then die cut the Neat and Tangled "awesome," awesome die from both black cardstock (background) and gold foil paper for the top.  The "You Are" is from the Love Puffin stamp set also by Avery Elle and I stamped and embossed that in the same gold as the butterflies. I love being able to use stamp sets in different ways :)

I put the top panel together and added some dots with my white and gold gell pens for added detail. I then sprinkled some Tailored Expressions sequins and some small pearls. I felt that a white card base didn't fit the design so I added VersaMark around the card edges and used gold embossing. I much prefer the way it turned out!  This will go to an awesome friend, who, unfortunately lives way too far away!

Have a great week! Bonne semaine :)
