This week the challenge is from both Fusion and Case this Sketch.  I followed both the inspiration photo for colors and the sketch for my card.  I am also going to enter in PTI's MIM #169, where the challenge was to use a vellum overlay.

The lovely butterfly die cut was a gift from my friend, Barb G. - I embossed it with liquid platinum twice.  I found the little glass bead in my stash and thought it echoed the glass in the photo so nicely.  Gold metallic thread was in my sewing drawer from a long ago project.  I think it turned out quite nicely - and can be used for several different occasions -always a good thing!

Paper: PTI card and vellum; Making Memories "Wedding"
Stamp: HA CL498
Other: SSS Leanna butterfly; Ranger embossing powder

Thanks for visiting and your kind comments.  Betty
