Cuttlebug Butterfly and Nestabilities

I posted earlier today to show your how everyday things give me inspiration, the colour of the rose gave me the start of this card.
I used the Cuttlebug cut and emboss butterfly the nestabilities ovals and a pretty flourish stamp by Papertrey Ink.
Not a bit of ribbon to be seen.

The cuttlebug butterfly, pearls were added to form the body.




A close up shot showing the flourish heat embossed with with powder.

Lovely card, Jak. I would never have thought to put the pearls down the middle of the butterfly for the body. Great idea.

Love Joan :o)
