Garden butterfly

This is a fast little card I made for a card club exchange.. I pretty much love brown with everything if you haven't guessed by know. I especially love to match it with only one other color family. It has a simple elegance about it wether its brown and blue or brown and green or in this case brown and pink. When I was at "Roberts Crafts" in UT. I found a bag on clear pebbles that look a lot like dew drops. If you need TONS you can get the clear at "Roberts" for abound $12.00 if you would like to have a nice stash then I found a much smaller bag (about 12 0z??) About $3.00 at "Michael's" in the Floral department. If you have permanent markers you can color the flat side and you have all the colors in the rainbow. I purchased from "Costco"(best store ever) a while back a huge multi color pack of sharpies for less that $20.00. To adhere the dew drops I used mini glue dots I have also had luck with "Gloo" form "Ki memories" it's the only liquid I have found that works.  I used "Crystal Effects" in the flower images to give them a little pop. I you don't own "Crystal Effects" you need to. It is one of my must haves. I stamped the image twice to give the dark and lighter effect. Usually referred to as second generation. Have a HOT weekend it's a scorcher today high 90s and 97 forcasted tomorrow. Out to the Kiddy pool for me..
