CASE Study Challenge # 132

This is my card for the CASE study challenge.  I loved the butterflies and wanted to do something that I saw on Nichole Heady's blog...using perfect pearls!  I also wanted to add a sentiment from Beautiful Blessings to give encouragement to someone special.  I had to practice with the perfect pearls to get the right amount and not get it all over the paper because it doesn't want to brush away so least that was how it was working for me!  BTW...the perfect pearl butterflies have a really nice shine and shimmer to them IRL!

  Paper:  PTI winter wisteria, stampers select white, hawaiian shores, vellum
ink:  memento black, hawaiian shores, versamark
dies: PTI half and half, Martha Stewart vellum butterfly
stamps:  Beautiful Butterflies, Beautiful Blessings
misc: Rangers perfect pearls turquoise, gems  
                                                                                                                                                                         Go HERE  to see the rest of the teams inspiration cards based on this one by Julie Ebersole.
