Start here with a Butterfly Brad - SVC

Hi All! Another challenge today at Stamping Vacation Challenges - this time the theme is - Start here with a Butterfly Brad. The card sample was made by my lovely blog buddy Annemaree, so I had big shoes to fill.
To my horror - I do not own a single butterfly brad! But...... I did find in my search a very large round metal brad and a small butterfly embellishment - hence I put the two together with some Glossy Accents and Viola! This card was a bit out of my comfort zone as I did some bleach stamping, some dry-embossing and my first attempt at an easel card without someone over shoulder. I can tell you that the completed card was not the one that I pictured in my head! Anway, onto the photos!!!!!!
