Gingerloft DT card 'Add beads'

Well happy sunday morning all. Those 2 weeks went by sooooo fast it is time for another challenge at Gingerloft and this fortnight it is  'Just add beads'.  Don't forget you could win 3 gingerloft digital stamps if you win, so make sure you are in it to win it!

I have used this beautiful sentiment from the gingerloft store for this card and cut it out with one of my nesties dies, I have then used versa clear ink and gold metalic embossing dust and embossed around the edge.  The butterfly backing paper has been in my stash foreverand I have no idea where it came from.  The pink card has been embossed with swirls  and a fiskars boarder punch for the piece across the middle.

A close up of the sentiment!

The butterflies have also been heat embossed with the gold metallic dust.  This butterfly is a marianne creatable die and I have used gems down his middle.  I have used beads threaded onto some wire to create the butterflies trail.

This butterfly is another die cut treated in the same way. (Bloggers challenge) things with wings


Thanks for stopping by
