Butterfly Wedding

Phew...finally got my computer back. We have been without power for 5 days now. A co-worker of Paul's got his back and offered to let us use his generator! WOW...now we have hot water, a running refrigerator, one lamp, TV, a coffee maker (the top priority, lol) and computer. I am hoping that the one lamp will light my craft room enough to play today. I am really sick of reading by flashlight!

I do have a wedding card I made while I was on break.
As you know, I LOVE shimmer paper. I also can't get enough of this nestie die. Butterflies seem so perfect as a couple begins their new life together. I added lots of pearls to kind of make up for the lack of pattern paper and they just look so pretty. Of course, as always, I purchased these from Pizzazz Aplenty.

I have to say, I really like how everything blended together. The small amount of pattern paper I do have here is a digital paper I got from Bearly Mine Designs.  The light embossing of the 3rd layer is from the SU Texturz Plates. Doesn't it add such a pretty and soft look.
Here you can get a better look at the pattern paper. I am so at awe as to how well digital paper prints out. I find a lot of them print out as an 8x8 pattern, which seems to waste a lot of paper. The patterns are so pretty, though, so I use them anyway, lol

I so wanted to use the smaller version of the die, so decided to add it to the back of the front (back of the front, lol, sound so funny!) It was a good way to get some ribbon on there too :o)
Have super wonderful day!!! {{{HUGS}}} Sandy O

Beautiful card. Love the shimmery paper and butterfly die.

Glad to hear you have electricity for your coffee pot! We were lucky, only lost power for 45 minutes!
