This week our destination is Ransom, PA.If you would like a destination for your card, how about sending it to Brenda? She was brought to our attention by scrappinmama72inpa (Emily).
I first used the Wrinkle Free Distress technique by using Broken China, Peeled Paint and Mustard Seed. After I had the paper dry, I punched two different sized flower punches and there is a small circle punch in between those layers. I also punched the very small flowers as a single layer to fill. I wanted my card to look like a field of flowers for Brenda.
The butterfly is four layers of vellum. The bottoms three layers are all heat embossed and the top layer is stamped. I used a Nailhead for the butterfly head, and black crystals for the rest of the body. The trail is by Prima and I lifted the butterfly on dimensionals. No scripture this time, but an encouraging sentiment. Thank you for hosting Fran! Thanks so much for taking a peek!
