Butterfly pearls

   The theme for the new challenge at Creative Corner this week is all white and one other colour. I have always admired parchment work and thought I would give it a try, so this is my first parchment card!
   The ovals on the centre piece were embossed using Pergamano's multi grid 33. I then used the Groovi plate 'occasions to emboss the sentiment in the centre after which I attached it at the four corners to red card.
   The border at at bottom of the card was created from white card using the Tattered Lace pearl border die and a strip of red ribbon.
   The two separate butterflies were made using Tattered Lace's butterflies parchment grid number 2 and I added red gems to the body. I attached a red candi card in the other corners to cover where I had attached the main design.
    Finally I added red Liquid Pearl dots to one of the embossed ovals.

  9. Mary this is just gorgeous, and your first??? You clearly have a delicate touch.

    I once bought loads of parchment stuff, but was absolutely rubbish at it. In fact I epitomised that old saying 'all the gear and no idea!'

    Thanks for sharing your fabulous card in our 'Birthdays' challenge
