Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion 
Happy Sunday Everyone!
I hope you are having a wonderful weekend~
Today I am sharing a pretty card I made using some products I recently purchased and just now getting time to use them. I went a little outside my box with different techniques but so glad I did. A few things I learned along the way, a few things I would change or do a little different but overall I really like how this turned out!

I have been inspired by a few amazing and talented blogger friends with all these crazy techniques, textures, paints etc. So, thank you Lisa at A Mermaids CraftsMona at Cupcake Creations and Pamela at My Little Craft Things for inspiring me to try something new. For those of you who do not know these ladies, be sure to visit their blogs, you will be amazed with their creativity and stunning projects!!

I started with the Nesting Square Doilies Die for the card base and layer of my card. The next panel is My Creative Time's~Stitched Squares Inside and Out which is water colored using Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet and Fired Brick distressed inks. I lightly misted it with water and let it dry. I then added a layer of texture using a Tim Holtz layering stencil and Ranger texture paste. I heat embossed around the edges with Fantasy Silver from Sweet Stamps for a sparkly look.
I layered cheesecloth, then tucked in Memory Box Chandra Stems with an enamel embellishment to the center. I layered a pretty piece of lace along with a border with My Creative Time's~Fun Stitched Edge die. The heart is My Creative Time's~Heart to Heart Love Frames Die. The inside frame is dipped in Top Boss, then Shabby White Embossing Enamel as are the larger butterflies and heat embossed. The gorgeous butterflies are from My Creative Time's~Pretty Butterflies and Dragonfly Die set. The little butterflies are embossed again in the Fantasy Silver embossing powder for a shimmery look.
The flowers are from Recollection, dipped in Angel Dust. The pretty ribbon is Whipped Cream crinkle ribbon from DL.ART and the little button is Wee Petites from Die Versions embossed in Shabby White Embossing Enamel.
