Wing It

I have had this beautiful pink and brown butterfly cardstock for some time and really wanted to use it.  It was perfect for this card.  The card base is light pink, embossed with a Cuttlebug Embossing folder.  I cut out small squares from my butterfly cardstock and layered them on darker pink scalloped squares. 

Then I stamped the butterfly image from Our Daily Bread Designs new Faith set with light pink Colorbox Chalk ink on glossy cardstock.  Then I brayered darker pink Colobox Chalk ink over the top to bring out the image.  This is cut out with a Spellbinder label and layered on a larger light pink Spellbinder and attached with pop dots.  I sponged some dark brown ink around all the edges of all the dies and the base card.  I added the sentiment, stamped in dark brown on light pink, with another Spellbinder die.  I added some light pink chrystal butterflies (sorry my color is so off), and a white bow.  I didn't have any dark brown little pearls or chrystals so I rubbed dark brown Stazon onto light pink pearls and added them to the two open corners.  I love the look of brown and pink together and the butterfly carstock worked perfect with this new ODBD stamp.
