Shine your light - Play Time :)

Peek-a-boo people :) 

Popping in quickly to share a card that I had been itching to
 make all week but only tonight got the time to sit and play! 

To help inspire me a little more with the 'Try' the C&S look,
 I am playing along with the adorable color combo theme this week at 

It is a delicious combo that I just could not pass up lol and I think this would have to be my favourite C&S card by far yet!  And Ssshhhh I am really getting a fondness for this style sssshhhh

So here we go .... 

 This is the Inspiration pic and colors I played along with. 
Just delicious hey?  See why I just had to play along :)

 A side view. 

 Close up of the focal point and sentiment.

My camera doesn't do the butterfly justice :( 
 It is coated with clear kindy glitz and just shines and sparkles beautifully. 

I really do love the simple elegance of this card and so happy with myself that I still managed to combine all the things I love with the pearls, ribbon, bling and a little touch of distressing on the butterfly and yet still managed to make it C&S with lots of 'white space'.  

Anyways my good folks, it is way past this Cinderella's bed time as she has to work in the morning so I am going to love and leave you till laters :) 

Thanks for calling past to see me :)
Till next time ....
