Butterfly Dreams....

Hi all! I'm back with a fun card to share with you today.........

I love, love these butterflies....but, ofcourse, some of you already know how much I love butterflies since that is my 'nickname' in the Vietnamese language! ;) And lately, I've had this love for vintage and distressing, still don't do as many projects with distressing as much as I would like to, but I see myself improving in that area much more so than say, a year ago!

And what about orange??? How do you feel about the color orange? I've been mentioning this to many people that orange is fast becoming a favorite of just strikes me somehow this year!!

For this closeup - I stamped and trimmed my butterflies, and then curled them gently downwards with my fingertips before adhering my gems....turned out very pretty I thought!

And a look at this sentiment - so beautiful and I love that elegant script writing:

Enjoy.....have lots more to share with you in the weeks to come!!
