Just Because....

I was finally able to get around to checking out what I missed last night during Gina K's release party. I was just so exhaused after the trip all I wanted to do was collapse onto the couch and veg. We ended up ordering a pizza and watching Dark Knight....I fell asleep about half way thru. Just couldn't stay awake. So, anyhoo....Gina released a new set last night called "Take Flight". And it has 2 amazing butterflies! Well I was so inspired by all the beautiful cards made with the set that I dug deep, found "On Gossamer Wings" and created this card.....well, just because. I wanted to add some spakle and dimension to the butterfly image, so I used first the dazzling diamonds technique, then 2 layers of SU! Glassy Glaze. And while it was still alittle bit warm, I curled up the wings just slightly. I mounted it up on 2 mini dots on top of the same image that's stamped onto the pure luxury CS. I used Creamy Caramel around the Top Note Die to give it a bit of an antique effect. I think it still needs something in the corners, but I don't have any brown brads on hand, and the baubles seemed too big. I didn't want them competing with the butterfly. And since the outside was so pretty, I did the inside as well, which I rarely ever do.
