Sweet and Sour butterflies

I have scrapbooked a page from our December holidays. We usually visit family on boxing day. It is one of the few days of the year I can get Jessie in a dress to sit and look pretty for a photo before she is out rolling in the dirt,chasing lizards and climbing trees.
When I opened my last order I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my butterfly die and the Sweet and sour patterned papers.
All I needed was a picture with some Rose Red and pink to match these gorgeous papers.
I chose a photo of Jessica with her aunty and cousin.
 This specialty patterned paper is double sided with one side glossy and textured. You can see the glossy pattern on the butterfly. One of the textured sides has this mosaic pattern, it contrasts with the swirly patterns and also goes with the square embossing layer under it.
 The sponging of the edges makes it look soft and natural. These butterflies just called to me to add pearls for their bodies.With the ruffled ribbon it is very girlish.

 I just love the Pumpkin pie with Rose Red.
