So here it is....
I used coredinations vintage collection cardstock as the backing. This stuff is great as it comes looking all sanded like this. I distressed the edges a bit to give a bit more character. The gorgeous heart paper is from the Imaginisce Perfectly Post collection - fancy hearts doublesided paper. I added a twiddleybitz border bits flourish (which I painted, sanded and glimmermisted to death), a lock charm and key charm, some ric rac and ribbon. The title is an ancient piece of my stash - a metallic word from Making Memories that I attacked with paint and glimmermist. The gorgeous butterfly is die cut from quickutz REV 0166 Butterfly die. I love this die.

And....as per the new year ressie....I did a card. I had originally cut the butterfly with a blue glittercard background, but it didn't quite work. I recycled this to make a quick card using Cristina Re paper, Adorn It letters and I embossed half the backing card with a cuttlebug embossing folder.
Off to cook burgers for dinner (ahhhh those children NEVER seem to stop EATING! LOL)
