Things That Fly

The challenge over at the monthly ODBD for OWH Stars and Stamps is "things that fly." OurDailyBreadDesigns donates shipping costs for two OWH boxes of cards for every 50 cards that are posted for their challenge, so I try to make sure and play along each month.
I made this card a while ago and never posted it, and it's perfect for today's challenge. The butterfly is a die by MB and it's called Vivienne. I heat embossed the center portion with silver ep and added 2 teardrop pearls from PizzazzAplenty.com. The dsp is from the wedding stack by Making Memories and the embossed background was done with a Sizzix Hello Friend ef by CB. The sentiment is from SU!

Thanks so much for stopping by today - I wish you a wonderful day!

Stunning and classy are the two words that come to mind, Carol. I LOVE the papers and that butterfly is so beautiful. I really have to order that this week. Wishing you a wonderful day and don't get too hot with the warm weather heading you way.

B&W is always a very favorite of mine. They always look perfect. This is just gorgeous, my friend. Those teardrop pearls were the best.

Black/white is one of my favorite color schemes and you used it well. Love you you embossed just the center of the butterfly and added pearls for extra detail.
