This is a birthday card for my friend Sherri! I found this gorgeous paper and decided to play with it. It actually has another piece of the same paper behind the die cut peice. The Make a Wish is from Penny Black. (Cut three times and glued together).Although this is going to be right next to another in my gallery that I used the same sentiment on they were actually made a few weeks a part. I used the faux pearl technique to accessorize the butterfly and corners. I was waiting for Sherri to receive this before posting it. I used the same paper inside with another penny Black sentiment on it. I LOVE these colors together and I really enjoyed making this card.
Thank you SO much for stopping by for a look!

Peggy, no WONDER you love this paper so much - it is to die for!!! Looks so feminine with that SB die too. I am so glad you kept one of the same colors to use for the "Make A Wish" sentiment. You must have the patience of a saint to glue three such fragile word dies together and make it look effortless like this - bet your friend flipped when she saw it!!

Wow Peggy, this sure is a real beauty! I have not seen the faux pearl technique but I think I am going to need to check it out as these are so stunning. I need to remember to cut my words more than once to pop them up. I have tired popping them up on dimensionals but that can be a real challenge. Your card is so soft and elegant. I am sure Sherri just loved receiving this beauty.

I've been unable to create for some time, just trying to get back into creating again...and thought I'd take a look at your creations, as I'm always so inspired and impressed, and this card is no exception! :)
