Hello My Crafty Friends,
There's a new challenge starting today at
The theme for this challenge is...
Anything Goes

I really like this saying and as I am sure some of you know, I love butterflies, as they remind me of my beautiful daughter. Butterflies was one of her favorite things.
I have been wanting to make something with this zipper digi and was thinking butterflies.
So I came up with this for a card.
 ...For This Card - Step By Step...
White cardstock for the card base.
Cut a piece of yellow paper to fit the center of the card.
Used the distressing tool around the card, yellow paper and saying.
Used a brown colored pencil around the card, yellow paper and saying.
Taped the yellow paper onto the card.
Taped the saying onto the card slanted slightly.
Taped the zipper onto the card overlapping the saying a little.
 Glued the grapevine leaves onto the card.
Glued the butterflies onto the card, leaving space for the flatback pearls.
I wanted the flatback pearls to look like a trail the butterflies had flown, no straight lines. 
After gluing the pearls on for the butterflies, I then glued some on the grapevine.
Then glued the large butterfly onto the card and a flatback pearl onto it.
Used the brown colored pencil to color around the zipper and add shading to the leaves.
