Bonnies 39 and glamorous Bday HOP

Hi everyone and welcome to the 39 and Glamorous Birthday Blog HOP.  Thanks for stopping by during Bonnie's celebration.     I am so excited to be part of this hop.  A big Thank You to the Birthday Girl for letting me to participate.
You should have arrived here from Stampin Dymonz over at   www.stampindymonz.com 
If not, you will want to start with our birthday girl Bonnie at  http://ascrapabove.blogspot.com/   .
 I hope you are enjoying all of the talented ladies on this hop.
 For this hope I decided to use one or two things out of the list of Bonnie's favorite things.  Butterflies, bling and the color purple.  I hope you like it Bonnie. :D Happy Birthday *<]:O)
 
 

This is a butterfly cut out at 4 inches  using the Paisley Cartridge and Mariposa paper by DCWV. 

 I decorated it with some homemade ribbon flowers, gold pearls, bling and wire for the antenna. 

I used a stamp for the Live Laugh Love.
  I used my sewing machine to stitch gold stitching into the paper before gluing it down.
The butterfly was cut out by hand  and UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing powder) was added and heat set  to make it shine and to thicken the image.  I hope you enjoyed my little tag.  Have fun  hopping to the rest of the talented ladies on this hop. :D
Your next stop is Corri http://buglvr.blogspot.com/.  I know she has a cooked up an awesome project for you to feast your eyes on. :D

  16. Your tag is fabulous, Meighen! I'm assuming from your discription that the base tag is purple but it looks brown to me in the pictures. Common problem with digital pictures. Anyway, you did a wonderful job on it. TFS!
