~Butterflies on Winter Cards?!~

Yes, I know....In Canada this doesn't happen very often...In fact, you never see butterflies during the winter months around this part of the country. Not unless you visit a conservatory. But I got to thinking...not every part of the world gets to experience a white, snowy and cold Christmas like we do. Many of the wonderful
ladies at SB.com brought this to my attention :) I often forget that 'winter wonderlands' come in many different forms...So, this card is made to reflect a more 'temperate' winter, if you will.

As usual, I used a lot of glitter on this card and a lot of lace. And just when I thought I couldn't fit in any more lace, I used border punches to make the pp look like lace. Oh, I think I have an obsession :)
I used a Tattered Angels stencil to create the large paper butterfly out of Websters Pages Garden Gala pp. I used chunky, sparkly glitter to spice up the wings. Behind the butterfly is a harlequin print from Creative Imaginations.

The smaller butterfly is from my own stash and the button combo is dotted with liquid pearls. The pom-pom trim is by Prima and the rest of the lace is from my own stash as well.

I covered a laser-cut mirror flower with some Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint and layered it with a delicate Prima flower that was distressed as well :)
Some more liquid pearls around the edges...and ta-daa!
Thank you all for lookin!
