Skipping Stones Design #87-Victorian Summer Butterflies

I stamped the butterflies from the new set Victorian Summer in Blushing Bride on white cardstock, then stamped them again in White Craft ink on pink vellum, cut them out and added some pretty pink pearls.  I really don't use pink very much, tend to lean more toward the masculine or earth tones, but I like the way the vellum and pearls turned out.  I also changed up the sketch a little, which is odd for me, I usually follow the sketch to a fault!

Check out the other DT members creations at Skipping Stones Design.   Be sure to play along and use SSD 87 if you upload to any on line galleries. Here's the sketch for this week:
