NBUS Challenge #5

After reading the Paper Smooches blog today, I discovered a new blog called NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff).  So many of the projects added were fun to read about.  I decided to enter the newest challenge with this card.

The butterfly die is from Memory Box and it is called Willoughby Butterfly Wings.  I bought this months ago and had not used it.  I have been playing around with foiling techniques and I thought this die would work perfectly.  I am using Thermo Web iron on adhesive transfer sheets and running them through my laminator.  The directions were on the back of the package of adhesive sheets and I must say it worked really well.  I used a rainbow foil sheet to give a gradient color across the butterfly.  The sentiment stamp is from an old Sizzix Phrases stamp collection, which I use all the time.  Ribbon and paper were on hand, no idea where they came from!  The pearls just finished it off.

I think we are all guilty of seeing things we just have to have, but do end up sitting on them, waiting for the right moment.  There is an old saying, "My husband lets me buy all the craft supplies I can hide".  I think this fits this situation.

Thanks for visiting.
