Yellow & Gray

Good Morning.....
it is to be almost 70 here today....and then turn brrr cold next week...
kind of hard on this "old" body of mine...lol
 
 
I worked hard on this card this morning....
might not seem so, but I did....
my butterfly was embossed on white vellum....
the background paper is actually quite "shimmery"
though it doesn't show up much.....
I cut my cute little buttons with a Sizzix die
and the flower, too...the center of the flower is one of the cute buttons I cut
with a bit of added glitter for "sparkle"
I am entering this in the Papercraft Star challenge to use yellow and gray....
why don't "you" do the challenge and see what gorgeous creations
the design team has come up with..they are "wowza"
and also in The Creative Paper Trade challenge "circles"

Gorgeous card. Love the vellum butterfly...very elegant. I know what you mean about the weather...one day we have the heat on the next the a/c.

It DOES look like you worked hard on it...it's beautiful!!! Although, you know how when you see a pretty card where everything fits and flows together so well,...it somehow looks EFFORTLESS??? This is one of those creations! I LOVE your colors...so elegant looking! And the embossing folder is so perfect for your little buttons! Your butterfly is so pretty and delicate, and the flower and bow are also beautiful accents to finish it all off! So glad you shared this lovely creation with us at the CPT! (And I'm sure Papercraft Star was happy to see it too!!!;)
