Beads & Baubles

I’m turning into a last minute creator!  What is up with that???  Totally stresses me out.  I don’t like trying to be crafty on a short deadline.  So today I squeezed out two card and this one is in just in time for the Moxie Fab World deadline.  Oh wait, I just saw this is a two week challenge.  Duh.  Oh well, now I am way ahead.  ha.

Gorgeous inspiration photo, right?  Love all the bling and colors and vintage feel.  I couldn’t wait to create something for this trigger.  Hopefully, I can do it justice.

I tried to recreate the blingy vintage style with the butterflies, buttons and crochet trim.

stamps: Everyday Sayings, Antique Brocade, Three Artistic Butterflies {Hero Arts}

patterned paper: Portobello Rd, Market St {My Mind’s Eye}
