 For the challenge over at Double D Challenge blog it was to use butterflies, this is my biggest butterfly punch so I went with that, had to dress it up a bit with some pearls of course :)

For my background I used a sheet from a pad that already has foiling and embossing, all you do is add the color, and I used a few different inks that I watered down on my mat and did a bit of smooshing to blend them. The tag is the same way and comes from a package of tags.  Instead of just having a rectangle piece I cut the whole background with a die to give it a bit more interest.

Spectrum Noir - Happily Ever After, Foil and Gloss resist paper & tag, colored w/smooshed inks

Martha Stewart - Butterfly punch

Spellbinder -  Labels 29 die

Paper Studio - pearls

I popped up the tag to give a bit more dimension.

Thanks so much for taking the time to pop in today, I appreciate it!

Wow!! This is so bright, cheery, and gorgeous!!! I love that pretty pink background and all the gorgeous butterflies!!

BTW -- I figured out the double spacing problem this morning. If you highlight the text you want to correct and hit the top right button (when you hover over it with your mouse it says "Clear Formatting") it goes back to the single spaced text.
