I was inspired by a lesson in the Online Card Classes Stretch Your Stamps 2 class to play with a background stamp and Perfect Pearls. I stamped the lovely background image with Perfect Medium and then applied Perfect Pearls to make an elegant sheen on the dark brown cardstock. I covered the die cut butterfly with gold embossing powder and heat set it. I wanted to repeat a little of the gold used in the background to tie the butterfly focal point to the background. For the sentiment, I used the die cut words, adhered them to a fishtail-cut flag, and covered it all with Glossy Accents to bring on a little more shine. Thanks for visiting.
