CR84FN Golden Butterfly...

Hiya!
I got some new goodies through the post today so thought I'd crack 'em open and have a play, and combine a couple of challenges along the way. I used the Card Patterns sketch as well as the gorgeous colours from the CR84FN challenge:


I used my new Waltzingmouse Labels 18 stamps for the main panel, and added a gold-embossed butterfly to the centre:


Unfortunately the photo doesn't do it justice as I had to take it at night, and without a light box this is the best I can do! The butterfly was embossed on vellum cardstock. I cut a doily using a PTI die for the top section and created a background panel on So Saffron using A Little Argyle PTI set. The sentiment is from also from PTI. I added some So Saffron ribbon as well as some So Saffron buttons with twine to finish.

Thanks for stopping by!
