Some News and a Card Just for Fun

Hi everyone, hope you're all enjoying a lovely evening. Whimsy Stamps are having a summer sale right now, until August 31st.  All items in the store, except gift
certificates, will be 25% off while supplies last - whooo hoooo!!!  Happy days - why not take a peek and nab yourself a few bargains.

I've been playing with one of the new digi images released by Whimsy this month, the Rose Butterfly which is available HERE

 This is such a beauty to work with, I couldn't resist glittering it up a bit.  I'm going to save this until Christmas - a birthday card for my MIL, I think she'll really like it!  I've used BG Boxer Papers and cardstock from my stash.  The sentiment was done on my lappy and also edged with glitter as was the border, topper and card itself.  The gold pearls are from my stash also.

I'd like to enter this card for the following challenges........

Papertake Weekly - Sketch(I moved text to centre - ignore entry if unacceptable)
 Basic Grey - Pearls
The Crafty Pad - Glitz and Glitter
Crafty Creations - Butterflies

Thank you for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your evening.
