Cute to Elegant Revisited

From "cute:"
(created for Mementos, more info HERE)
To elegant:

Using the same basic sketch, I substituted Penny Black Sundial for the elf image used on the first card.  The flower was a leftover from this week's PB&J Video.  Background papers by Basic Grey.  Large butterfly by Spellbinders, small butterflies by Martha Stewart.

Thanks so much for visiting.  See ya tomorrow with another "cute" inspiration! :)

I love the way that pearl on the big butterfly helps to accent the stamens (?) beneath of the flower centre & how all the delicate patterning of the background is echoed by those stamens in the flower head.

the level of details that takes your card from fun to elegant is amazing Jill. Love the addition of the butterflies and the fact that you mixed "high and low" accents. Really beautiful my friend!

Both of these are fabulous Jill! I really love the white butterflies on the white stamped/colored flowers- such a great eye popper! Love how you are such a master of all styles :)
