If nothing changed...

Hello,

I made this card this afternoon and was really pleased with it and thought I would share it on my blog. You know when you have an idea for a card and then when you make it up, it never turns out how you thought it would in your mind? Well this one turned out much better than planned for a change! 

I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of DP within the same pack as the background paper, using brown ink. I cut the image out using a Spellbinders die and then matted by drawing around the die and cutting out in caramel card stock. I glittered all around the edge's of the DP using a quickie glue pen, matted and layered and then added this gorgeous die cut butterfly. Finally I finished off with a few gems.
