Butterfly Prints

Another card with more of my must haves from the new catalogue: Butterfly Prints stamp set (I stamped the bodies on the background and on the butterflies so I wouldn't have to cut them out), Elegant Lines Textured Impressions Folder and the Basic Pearls.

I've made myself a little tool to make working with the tiny pearls and rhinestones easier.... I wrapped a glue dot around the end of a toothpick. I can use it to push the pearl off the backing sheet it comes on, and then put it in place and apply a little pressure to get it where I want it on my project. When I'm not using it, I just put a piece of the glue dot backing paper around it so it doesn't stick to everything.

Great idea using the toothpick! That stamp set is definitely on my list of sets to get! Love the card and the colors.
