You Make an Ordinary Day Special

I just love the delicate Vellum Butterfly and Vellum layer on this card designed by Ronda Wade. I had to make it. I am sad to see the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series paper retiring in a few weeks, but was so happy to use this gorgeous piece with Pool Party, Old Olive, Poppy Parade and Rich Razzleberry flowers on it. The Royal Peacock Rhinestones really dress up the already pretty butterflies.
