Fabric and Butterflies

I had to play along with May's Get Your Diva On challenge.  It was a toughie for me though.  Diva Amy chose to have players incorporate fabric.  I'm not so confident when it comes to fabric.  That is my mother's domain.  I'll take paper anyday!  I gave it my best shot though.

I used my Flutterby die and some white tulle.  On the first photo, it just looks like I have some texture going on for my butterflies.  A close up shot will reveal how the edges of the tulle curl up and give it a little more dimension. I accented the center of each butterfly with some embossed and colored vellum and a light stickling!

I called on a CPS sketch to get me started on this card and I love the little banner sentiment at the bottom of the card.  I embossed it on white to bring a little more amethyst to the card. 

Today, my sweet little girl leaves for Disneyland with her a couple of her aunties, a couple of her cousins and one grandmother.  She's a big girl now, almost five years old.  She's up for the adventure and I highly doubt she will miss Mommy and Daddy!

Thanks for stopping by!

Very pretty card. I've never used tulle but see many cards out there in blogland using it now. Thanks for your comment on my blog. I really appreciate it!
