The Paper Temptress DT!

I hope everyone is looking forward to the weekend as much as I am. We finally have a little sunshine so it is time to go crazy in my flower beds! Unfortunately for me, I do not have a green thumb so my flowers do not enjoy a long life. I have no idea what I do wrong...maybe love them a little too much! :)
Gardening aside...I want to share my excitement with you. I was picked to be on the Paper Temptress DT! Some of my good blogosphere friends are also on the team so it is doubly exciting. The papers that are sold at the Paper Temptress are absolutely stunning. Everything either gleams, sparkles or feels amazing. My friend True has a wonderful paper pack special for the month of May. It is called "True's Favorites" and right now, she is offering it for 20% off! You get 20 sheets (2 of a couple of colors) for $13.19! reg. $16.49!
If you want a little more shopping inspiration, I snatched this picture from True's blog :)


On my card I used the White pearl linen cardstock aroudn the edges and I used the Azalea Mica/Metallic for the butterfly. The papers just added the right amount of shimmer!

Challenges:
Crafty Ann's - Anything goes
Papertake Weekly - Shiny sparkly and special
Order of the Opus Gluei - Fit to be tied (ribbon)
