Mariana *Day 5*

Here is our last inspirational creation by Mariana:Just look at that butterfly?!! AMAZING!!! And Mariana has created the perfect background to showcase it. I love the embossed background on kraft. The touch of black around the sentiment is elegant along with the pretty row of pearls. Finally, the stitching is a great finishing touch.
Here is my take. I was also inspired by THIS awesome card by Jennifer McGuire. Thanks again, my friends, for stopping by this week. You always make my day! And BIG thanks to Mariana for playing along. I am your biggest fan and always look forward to visiting your BLOG and PHOTOSTREAM to see what you've cooked up next. :)
See you all tomorrow for Purple Onion Inspiration Saturday!
