Split Coast Stampers Sketch & Just Magnolia Challenge

Split Coast Stampers Sketch #229.

I stamped Butterflies A-Flutter with TH distress ink and then brushed Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls over it before it dried completely. It's hard to see in the picture but the image shimmers. Then I distressed the background with Antique Linen and spritzed it with glimmer mist. The background papers are Papermania - Exquisite and Core'dinations cardstock, which I ran through the cuttlebug and then sanded to bring out the core colour. I just added some adhesive pearls to finish it off.
