Embellish Mag. Challenge

Hello, friends:}

I wasn't sure what I was going to make for this challenge from Embellish Magazine. I was thinking and thinking...and then I looked at my Unity stamps (my FAV stamps ever!)....and saw that two of the butterflies had stripes!! Then I found out that our friend's mother had passed--so I knew exactly what I needed to do! I used cream paper for the base then attached a kraft card stock on top that was a bit longer. I rolled it over and tied it down. I love how that looks! I used Perfect Pearls for the butterflies (680 Duo Red Blue). It matched the purple metallic paper perfectly **NOTE:: It does not look good in the pic--I'm still working on that!! I also used Champagne pearls from Kaiser Scrapbook. The sentiment is from the dollar bin at Michaels. LOVE it! 
I tried to get a good pic from the side--so you could see the folded part...eh! I REALLY need photography lessons:}

Again--I'm trying to get a good pic of the perfect pearls--it looks really good in person and matches really well with the purple metallic paper accent. Eh. 

I will be creating more tonight...I hope that I have time to share them with you tomorrow~ I can't believe how busy my schedule is! CRAZY! Be sure to check back on Friday for FWF!! I will be sharing the cards that Jordan made this weekend [it was her first time crafting!]. 

Thanks so much for stopping by! Love our visits! Have a wonderful night! Be sure to stay warm--it is COLD out:}
Until next time~
Love, Sav
