Vintage butterflies

Hello everyone!

I'm entering today's card in Rhedd and Rosie's challenge, which is Vintage/Shabby.
These lovely butterflies and the word are from Inkylicious, the crackle background is from Visible Image.
I managed to blend Antique linen and Tattered rose distress inks (thank you Pauline and Eileen! :) ) in the background and then used my tattered rose DI pen on the butterfly wings.  The pearls I bought yesterday from Whitstable Stamp Craft in their bargain sale for £1.50 for a big bag... Oh I do love a bargain!!


You may notice that my comments box now pops up as a separate page, this is because I've heard from Eileen Godwin and the Rhedd and Rosie's challenge blog that embedded comment boxes can mean some comments are missed, don't know why but I'm doing what I'm told and using the pop-up box instead!... :D   Thank you for visiting, have a very happy Easter and enjoy the break! xxx
