Mariana *Day 4*

Here is our next card by Mariana:Oh, how I love that butterfly! The touch of bling is brilliant on both the butterfly and the pearls near the sentiment. And how about this color scheme?! Mariana really has a gift for working with color. And don't forget to look close at Mariana's cards for all of the wonderful details like the embossing, stitching, and twine antennae on this card!
Here is my take. I just love coloring in this butterfly by Hero Arts:
Thanks again for stopping by! I hope you'll visit tomorrow for our last day with the talented Mariana! :)
Stamps: Butterfly (Hero Arts E5388), Sentiment (Papertrey Ink)
