Sarah Hurley 'Spread your wings and fly' CAS Butterfly Card

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with a card from my fave ever Sarah Hurley stamp set which you can find here. I am really into the CAS style at the moment and I used a set of rainbow inks that complement each other really well. I then cut the wings around the butterfly in the centre with a craft knife and made them 3D. I added my sentiment slightly above the butterfly.

So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently. I started by doubling my tiger tail, and folding this over, then fixing the first ring with a crimp and covered this with the crimp cover. I then threaded m…
