and also I used the Two Step Butterfly Set. ,
And I cut the butterfly out with the Grunge Butterfly Die,
Paper: 110# White CS for the Base, White, Marina Blue, 
Ink: Marina, and Crumb:
Accessories: Crumb Ribbon, White Lace, Nesties, Pearls, Dimensionals, Liquid Glue:

The Next one on the list is Connie

I enjoyed seeing this. May I compliment your bow, so beautifully tweaked & tied? The blue & brown and overlapped butterflies with lace and borders make a lovely effect.

Well Jan, I confess I did not need either of these two BG stamps until I saw this card - and some of the others along the way who have used BG stamps as complimentary! This is pure and simply beautiful!
