Hello There Crafty Friends,
I am so excited and honored! I was asked to be a Guest Designer for...
Crop Stop
This is my second post. :)

...Here's my inspiration project...
...For This Card - Step By Step...
White cardstock for the card base.
Cut a piece of ivory cardstock to fit the center of the card.
Used Couture Creations 'Chiaro' Embossing Folder on the ivory cardstock.
Cut out the Creative Expressions 'Petite Butterflies' Dies with ivory cardstock.
Cut out the Darice Embossing Essentials Dies 'Ivy Border'.
Using a piece of The Paper Studio 'Tattered and Worn' Paper...For my flowers.
To make my flowers...Cut circles/cut them in a spiral shape/rolled them and glued to end.
Used a Ranger Ink Applicator with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad 'Tea Dye' - butterfly wings.
With the ink applicator I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad 'Vintage Photo' - on these...
On the card base/over the embossed background/on the flowers
Next I taped the embossed cardstock to the card.
With the ink applicator I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad 'Tattered Rose' - on the doily.
Weaved coffee stained lace and a string of pearls around the doily.
Used a strand of coffee stained gauge to tie the tail ends of the lace and pearls together.
Attached Score-Tape to the back of the doily and added it to the card.
Fussy cut the image out and taped it in the center of the doily.
Wove the ivy border in and out of the bottom part of the doily and taped it in place.
Glued a piece of coffee stained gauge to the bottom center of the doily.
Glued the flowers onto the gauge.
 Glued a small piece of coffee stained gauge to the top center of the doily.
Glued the flowers onto the gauge.
Then glued the butterflies onto the card.
