For my card, I've used a set called Butterfly Gardens. In this 3 1/4" circle set are three butterfly-and-flower image centers, three sentiments (two of them are circular border sentiments), and two additional decorative borders. I chose to focus on one of the beautiful border sentiments, "If nothing ever changed ... there would be no butterflies." I cut it into a ring using Spellbinders Classic Circle Nestabilities dies. On top of that I layered a blue text paper die-cut that was cut with one of the tags in the Spellbinders Fancy Tags Twoset. An olive green circle, flanked by two buttons, tops that. And last is a layered, punched butterfly with a organza flower center and some glittery (Stickles) wings. Elsewhere on the card, you'll find some oversize Kaisercraft pewter pearls, Maya Road crochet trim, hand-stitching, and some seam binding. The rich, earthy paper patterns are all from Prima's Reflections 6x6 paper pad

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Enjoy the hop!
