Cherish These Moments

I've been super busy creating some CHA projects for Graphic 45 and My Tattered Angels. Am taking a quick breather now and thought I'd share another layout I made using My Scrapbook Nook's gorgeous January kit, featuring Pink Paislee's Cupid collection.

I decided to use a dark brown cardstock for my base, and spritzed the edges with My Tattered Angels' glimmer mist in Iridescent Gold. I love the shine the mists give the cardstock.

These darling Scenic Route chipboard butterflies came with the kit and I decided to alter them using glimmer mists and crackle mediums. I like how the sunlight glistens on the butterfly. I'll post a tutorial on how I created the effect on the butterfly in my next post.

Lots of handcutting here, of leaves and flowers from the Pink Paislee patterned paper. And also fun with my Martha Stewart giant border punches.

Here's the view from another angle:

And here's a little reminder:
