Slip on over to the MMSC site http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com/ and check out the wonderful new sketch that our resident artist has created for us this week. Our sponsor is PB Stamps http://www.pbstamps.com/ and I have used two Penny Black stamps - The butterfly is called Bohemian and the leaves in the background are called Japanese Maple. Do I get extra points? I stamped the butterfly in clear and embossed it in gold. I covered it in Judikins Diamond Glaze and applied pearls to the wings. I covered the body and edge of the wings in gold stickles. The leaves were stamped in SU! Moss Green and embossed it with clear. Rectangles were cut with my Nestibilities scalloped rectangles. I used some Cuttlebug folder on the papers and cut a Martha Stewart border out in the moss green and white. The flourishes were cut with a Cuttlebug flourish die cut out of gold paper. My two ribbons were from Hobby Lobby and three pearl dew drops completed this card. I stamped the butterfly on the envelope and embossed it in gold.

OMGOSH, Phyllis, this is magnificent. I cant image how long this must have taken you to first, think of how to work with the sketch and then, secondly, how to take your vision and craft such a gorgeous card. Girl, this is a work of art and not a thing less than that.

WOW Phyllis, look at all those gorgeous pearls on that butterfly. The moss green, white and gold is such a very classy combination and I really love how your card turned out. Beautiful work my friend.
