Enjoy the Journey

TIME OUT ChallengesTook me until the last minute to decide how to case Kim's beautiful card for Time Out Challenges.  I love the contrast of colors with the black & used it as the basis of my card.  I used Stamplorations Confetti Circles stencil with embossing paste & a very old embossing powder called Fremont Street. The butterfly from Stamplorations Trendy Butteflies is embossed with the same powder, trimmed out & mounted with foam tape. 
I heat embossed the sentiment from the same set & finished off with some black pearls. I'm also entering the Anything Goes challenge at Stamplorations & Virginia's View Layers & Dimension.
