Happily Ever After

Hello!
I have exciting news… I am the March Guest Deisgner for Clearly Besotted Stamps.
When the owner Stephanie emailed me, I could not believe my luck! Not only are Stephanie's stamps and dies stylish and high quality, but she is absolutely lovely too. AND her Design Team are AWESOME - so many people I love and admire there. So I said a very excited yes, and eagerly awaited my stamps.
And boy was I excited when they arrived. This month's release is stunning!
So, for the next five days I will be playing along with the team and sharing sneak peeks of the new sets until the big reveal on the 5th. I hope you enjoy seeing what I create. :)
Today's card features the Elegant Butterflies set.  Warning: you are going to LOVE and want this set! To make my card, I heat embossed the butterflies on vellum with gold embossing powder then stitched them together. I added them to cardstock misted with a load of Calico Shine and Opaque White Mister Huey's. The sentiment is also in the Elegant Butterflies set. Love the mixed fonts.

I love the look of gold on vellum. So pretty.

More to share tomorrow for Day 2.
But until then… here are a few past projects I created with Clearly Besotted Stamps:

And wanna see what's on my Clearly Besotted wish list? A few of their brand new dies perhaps? 
These products may well be winging their merry way to me as I type… I literally just placed an order. (Who can resist such cuteness) ;)
And if you want to see more teasers, head on over to Stephanie's blog and then check out what the Clearly Besotted DT created too!
Hope to see you tomorrow - happy Saturday.
