I have always used Awesome Stampin' UP! paper. I simply find that it's the best and produces the most attractive results. However, I found these beautiful paper patterns in one of my Cardmaking and Papercrafts Magazines, and I just had to use it. I made this card for Jake's Godmother's birthday with that paper. This card turned out well, however one of the other cards that I tried with a different paper in that magazine did not turn out so well. Rather than use my normal adhesive on these types of papers, in the future I will use spray on adhesive. I also used pearls and what you can't see in the picture are the pretty clear gems I used in the center of the butterflies.
