"L'envol des Papillons"

 Hello there, how is everybody ? I am not stressed, but I am distressed out ...Oufff..It took me 4 EVER to make this card...Are you guys like me and spend hours looking through everything just to make sure what you use is the best choice. Boy, I am going to be in mucho pain after this...

I choose 5 papers from various collections, cut them out,distressed them, and inked  some of them.I then made this cute little envelope. I ended up having to use velcro to keep the flap down. I choose a beautiful button from my collection and cut out this bird cage.

I made a tag and cut out another part of the Mariposa paper, LOVE that collection!! added some ric rac ribbon...
Had to cut an X in half for my accent...


The butterflies and the other cut out is also from the Mariposa pack.

For the inside, I cut out the exterior of a circle and added a journalling tag to the center.

I used a Prima mask and sprayed with some color wash.
Yep, they make a cute pair. Till next week...xoxoxo
