Happy New Year and Clean and Simple #122

Wow I cant believe it has been so long since I last posted. we had a fantastic Christmas here in Auckland then a very nice holiday at the Mount. We then came home for a few days and went back on holiday at Waihi Beach. I do have to say I started going into withdrawals since I didn’t take any craft stuff away with me. So today being our first day back I got straight into my craft room and made this weeks Clean and Simple, actually I think its last weeks sketch but they are open for two weeks, I will do this weeks hopefully tonight or tomorrow. So here is my card, I know a few people have used the butterflies on their cards but as soon as I saw this sketch I know exactly what I wanted to do.

I have sponged all the edges including the butterflies. For the embossed image I have sanded the top and give this effect, and used the pearls to finish the butterflies. Im not sure why as these are not normally the colours I would use but I had green and purple in my head for this one.
