I am honoured to have been asked to share some projects to the book, especially top be among such amazing designers - thank you Keri Lee for this wonderful opportunity.   I thought I would share one with you today.  I featured  a handmade flower using a stamp and layering it. I loved adding layers to give dimension, along with the flower, the butterfly becomes a gorgeous embellishment in it's own right.  Add to that beautiful patterned paper, pearls and lace and the card is complete.  You can find step by step instructions in the book, for this card and many others.
