Welcome to Butterflys and Bows!
I hope your day has been as beautiful as ours is here in the Southern Highlands.
Autumn is such a beautiful season here and the trees are starting to look beautiful.
This photo was taken by my husband as he left work the other days…just love the colours.
Well to get back to what I’m supposed to be Blogging about…….
Global Design Project Challenge for this week is a Theme Challenge and the theme is….
Now I don’t use a lot of “Bling or Sparkle” on my cards, so this was a bit of fun!
The “Bling” I used is the Glimmer Paper – Dazzling Diamonds and if its Diamonds then it had to be a Wedding Card.
I used the Glimmer Paper for the Matt, leaves and flower centers. The Glimmer Paper Matt I cut as a boarder and used the center piece to cut the leaves and Flower pieces from. Once the Blushing Bride and Whisper White matt’s are layered together with the Glimmer Paper, then no one will know except you and me!
I layered the 3 matts on top of each other, adhering together with Multi Purpose Glue and mounted to the card front with Dimensionals.
I used Thick Whisper White Cardstock for the card base as this card will be fairly heavy and it will support all the layers.
The Flowers and leaves were cut from the Framelit sets “Botanical Builder” and unfortunately this is one set that will be leaving us at the end of May.
So if you are interested in purchasing this then GO to my SHOP and purchase it now, before its sold out.
The colours used for the flowers are Blushing Bride and So Saffron.
The sentiment and frame boarder comes from the Rose Wonder Stamp Set was stamped using the Blushing Bride Stampin’ Pad and Basic Grey Archival Stampin’ Pad. The matching die cuts are from the Rose Garden Thinlits Dies.
Pearls finishes of the card as centers of the beautiful flowers.
I hope you have enjoyed my card if you want to know anything more just contact me and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Oh Michele, your card is just as lovely as that gorgeous image of the trees changing colour! Love the shimmery glimmer paper and fantastic tip to get the most out of this product by utilising the centre piece of the glimmer paper. The pearls are the perfect elegant finishing touch. Thanks for playing along with this week’s Global Design Project challenge.
