a sneak peek

Hi my friends. My card today is a sneak peek of a digital image (sentiment) being released on January 8th over at Squigglefly. I also used some butterflies from Fancy Flowers, which is not a new set of images. I trimmed off the tails and just filled in the edge with a black marker. I sponged them with cherry cobbler ink and added some pearls for the bodies and some Atyou Spica highlights for a bit of glitz on the wings.

This was for a design team challenge 'put your heart into it'. I don't have any digital heart images, so I used a heart punch and die cuts. The heart is die cut from some old sheet music using Spellbinders hearts nestabilities.

The background is embossed with woodgrain embossing folder and sponged.

I added some dots with a white gel pen on the scallops and some tiny punched hearts on the sentiment piece and in the corners.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
