Sentiment Front and Center

This week Denise is the hostess for the Timeless Tuesday challenge at Flourishes. She has challenged everyone to create a card using a 'Sentiment' as the main focal point.


The sentiment is from the Butterflies and Blossoms set and the butterflies are from the Gerber Daisies set. The butterflies on the background paper (K and Co) were highlighted with a Sakura Stardust pen and liquid pearls were applied to the center of the bg flowers. Since I don't use a sewing machine I applied faux stitching around the edges with a white get pen then highlighted the stitching with the Stardust pen. The butterflies were stamped on vellum then fussy cut. The ovals are Nesties and the ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.

Those butterflies are beautiful, as is the entire card! I have the hardest time stamping on vellum--my stamp always slides around. Any suggestions?
