Secret Gardens and Butterfly Kisses

Who wouldn't want butterfly kisses in a secret garden?? Sounds divine to me!

Actually we have real live butterflies in our bedroom!! Jason found them hybrinating in some wood at work, they were going to burn all the wood so he collected all the butterflies and brought them home. they are still in hybrination, but when they wake we will set them free.

Anyhoo, back to the card! This card was made using today's sketch challenge. I really like the layout, but then again I love layers!!

The only thing I wasn't sure about was the brads, I tried some small green ones but they didn't work well so I turned to these pearl brads, but they seem a little too big???

I am so glad that I have hoarded my secret garden scrappin kit, I just love the papers in it! I stamped the butterflies onto vellum then added some stickles in the flower centers on the wings.

Supplies: Butterfly kisses, papertrey, groovy guava, always artichoke, white cs, secret garden simply scrappin kit, vellum, groovy guava ink, stickles, bling, brads, ribbon and marker.
