Butterfly sympathy with a Pearl...........

Today's Ways to Use it Challenge is to use pearls! I LOVE using Pearls - with a capital "P" because I LOVE using Pearls!!

My card base is Prism blue - I don't have a clue to the special names - baby blue, light blue, sky blue, basic blue, not quite blue, could be blue but it's not, - it's too much to remember. Suffice to say it is a lighter than dark blue and quite pretty!

I stamped the silhouette flower's from Kim Hughes set Nature's Silhouette in Vintage Photo distress ink and Adirondack denim ink.

The designer paper is Basic Grey Granola and I stamped right onto the designer paper, along with the sentiment is from the Papertrey Ink set Birds of a Feather, which is a beautiful font that I just love using!

I trimmed the bottom piece of dp with my threading water punch and then added a couple of lines of embossing with my Scor-Pal.

My mail lady delivered my Cuttlebug Tag Team Butterflies just this morning - yay!! and it was perfect to use for this card!

I added a (rather large) pearl brad to the center of the butterfly to make her pretty!

Ready to send on its way - although I detest having to make these type of cards, hopefully the recipient will find some comfort in it.............
