I love making cards just to make cards!!  I am sure I will find some challenges to enter this into but it was just fun to make!!   No coloring, just sewing, die cutting and some amazing paper.
This amazing paper is from K&Co.  I just loved the black and white with butterflies and decided to add a die cut from Tim Holtz with a background of kraft paper.  I inked the edges with CTMH creme brulee ink. I added some of that gorgeous white lace from Wild Orchid Crafts and some sheer gold scrunched ribbon on top. 
I then added a little metal tag that says adore, a charm and some pearls to finish it off.   
Don't forget to enter my blog candy.   I will be picking a winner soon.

I am going to add this to these challenges:
Crafty Sentiments Designs has punches and die cuts. I used a Tim Holtz butterfly die. 
Delightful Challenges has things with wings.
Pals Paper Arts has a recipe challenge: 1 DP, 1 punch and 1 sentiment.
Southern Girl's has black and white with a pop of color.
Flutter By Wednesdays  of course has a butterfly, angel, fairy on it.
The Paper Shelter has stitching. I have mine on the ribbon.

As always, thanks for stopping by my blog. I love visitors!!

I love this, Bren. I really like the little metal charm for some added detail. The paper you used on the die cut is cool; it makes it look kind of realistic.
