Butterflies, Pearls, Glitter

Very last minute, but didn't want to miss the challenges at Colour Me & Freshly Made Sketches--love them both!
All the stamps are DeNami & my inks are Memento Rose Bud & Angel Pink and VersaMagic Aquatic Splash. I used vellum for my grid pieces, adding Stickles & Crystal Lacquer.  The large butterfly was heat embossed a second time & the wing sections were fussy cut, covered with pink Hero Arts glitter glue (ancient bottle in my stash!) & mounted with a glue dot in the center so both ends could be turned up.  
Light pink pearls finish it off. I'm behind again in reading blogs, but I'll catch up in the next day or 2. Wishing you a great week, my friends.
