Beautiful Butterfly

I was tiding up some of my Patterned papers and I came across a packet of Cristina Re pearlised papers I had got at a sale.  I just love the luxury of the PP and it's pearlised feel.  I matched it some Webster's Pages PP.


I used the backside of the paper to stamp the sentiment from a My Favorite Things set and then cut with a Spellbinders Labels die.  I stamped the butterfly from a HA/Sizzix set and white embossed it on the textured side of the paper.  I then cut it out with the matching die.  I added some scrap ribbon that was on my desk. 

I've decided that with summer coming I need to get back into some exercise and lose some weight, so I've joined the gym again.... it's been a year since I had my back surgery so it's time to get back into it.   I go for my assessment and programme tomorrow.... Hopefully I can commit to at least  3 days a week.  It's a women only gym on my way home from work which makes it easier to go.

Looking forward to the weekend...........  I'm going to a Stampin' Up workshop on Sunday ~ all day... should be fun as I think there are only a few of us going. 
Off to catch up on the On-line class "Kick Start" Day 2

The shimmer of this paper is beautiful! Have a fun weekend of stamping Dawn.

This is terrific, Dawn! Love that shimmer and the depth of that paper is unreal. Yes, I really believe in exercise! It is sometimes difficult to get there (we would rather be crafting), but you feel so good after you've done it. Good luck with your new program.

this is gorgeous Dawn. I love the shimmer of the paper and your butterfly is stunning. I like how you have popped and bent it's wings over...very beautiful placement that way. Good luck on the gym....I am terrible at getting to mine....much prefer walking outside where I am "alone"

Oh Dawn this is stunning - love how you have worked with the pearlised paper to make a gorgeous card.
Good luck with the gym - I started this past winter and feel so much better for it.
