Now, I have a wonderful card to share with you today! I love this colour combination! Did you know you can colour the Stampin' Up Pearls with the Blendabilities??? With the Blendabilities that package of pearls, rhinestones or brads can be coloured to match your projects!

    WOW!!!!  What a gorgeous card. I just love the colours and how it pops.

  2. Love how the butterfly "pops" from the page.  Did you use Papillon Potpourri Stamp set for the butterfly?


  3. Thanks! Yes, MaryAnn, sorry about that, I've updated the post now, but it is the butterfly from Papillon Potpourri.
