Tuesday Throwdown-Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps

This week, challenge #58 at Tuesday Throwdown is being sponsored by Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps and I'm using their beautiful hydrangea image. The challenge is to use something metallic. I punched my butterflies using metallic paper. The hydrangea was so easy to color and so much fun. I added some adhesive pearls and gemstones for the leaves and swirls. Of course, I'm using my favorite Cuttlebug embossing folder, 'Textile'.  For my image to fit the nestabilitie I used, I did an out-of-the-box technique on one of the leaves.
Add a pretty ribbon, sentiment, and corners and that's it.

Entering the Icopic Weekly Challenge #39 to use pastels.
Also, I want to enter Paper Playtime challenge #50-Summer
