The Shabby Tea Room #59!

Welcome all :)  Pattie is our host this week in the Tea Room and has chosen this pretty little photo for inspiration ...


... and asks us all to create a card with BUTTERFLIES!



I {heart} butterflies, so this was an easy peesy challenge for me!  I tried to mimic the trailing butterflies by adding five 3-D pretty little winged creatures and embellishing them with glitter - yum!  The rectangle base on which I mounted the digi stamped image is a mimic of the shape of the cake as well.


I added some embossing, inking, sewing and embellies - pom-pom trim, pearl flourishes, resin roses, seam binding bow, lace and more glitter!  Papers are Sparkling Spring and Botanical by Prima from The Beary Scrap Paper Crafting Boutique!


Our sponsor in the Tea Room this week is The Stamp Fairy and I got to design with the 'Nelly & Leo #6' digital image ... isn't she sweet!  Good friends of ours, Mark & Beverly, sent my hubby an edible fruit arrangement filled with strawberries and cut pineapple in the shape of 'hearts' this past Friday to help him along in his recovery from the cardiac catherization/stent procedure he recently had.  I made this thank you card especially for them to thank them for their loving support and blessings!
