Pink Butterfly with Beads

I made this card a while ago and sent it off to a great freind {hi Jessica}!! I absolutely LOVE this paper!! It is the Ella paper from Cosmo Cricket's Twist and Shout collection. While I am a true Basic Grey lover, Cosmo Cricket is up there too with their fantastic papers!! I stamped the dotted circle border from Papertrey Ink's Borders & Corners {circle} set around the sentiment (Mixed Messages also from Papertrey INk) and then glued pink glass seed beads to every second 'dot' of the border. Jessica said that the beads were still there when she recieved it - all the way to the U.S. I had used Tombo Mono Mulit Liquid Glue. I swear, that stuff could hold an airplane together!! The butterfly is Martha Steward, of course.
Well, the rest of the card is pretty staight forward. I really should go get ready for work as today is my first day back after having a few weeks off. While I know I should feel lucky to get that much time doesn't make going back any easier. It just gets in the way of what I love to do!!!
Thanks for dropping in. I have more creations made for Dina's birthday challenges to post this week as they are due by the 8th. Are any of you going to play along with her????

Ooh, I love this one (even better when I zoomed in and saw all of the cross stitching in the paper). Great colors, too! :) Kel
