A recipe for a fun time

My friend Pam and I were chatting today. I thought it would be fun to do a recipe challenge.
We each picked 2 ingredients to go into our recipe. I picked BUTTERFLIES and PEARLS. She picked the color TEAL and LACE. 
The result of this recipe is this card.

I used the Mojo 369 for my card.
 I started with I took a piece of teal cardstock. I embossed it with my french script embossing folder and my cuttlebug. I then covered that teal cardstock with glue encyclopedia scraps and  white paint. I wanted it to dry quickly so I put it on a foil lined cookie sheet and I put it in my oven. It dried in 2 mins. I was very happy with the results. I might have to try it again. I let it cool and I used a stencil and copper inka gold. I also took gold paint and went over the embossed script. I cut it into thirds. I wanted to have my pearls for my butterfly trails. I only had straight pearl strips. So I cut each pearl apart and using tweezers and put them down one at a time.
