a sping pendant with grungeboard base

It's finally spring!  Time to break out the butterfly stamps--this one
is from the Nature Medallion set from Blockheads, but the outer
edge of the medallion is cut away to show the texture of the Grungeboard
base.  With lots of layers of colors, the Grungeboard makes a great
foundation, as it keeps its shape and doesn't fall apart. The pendant is
edged with some micro beads in medium pink, which gives it another
bit of texture.  Add a grommet, jump ring, and cord, and voila!

 A fun springtime pendant!  (Oh, and the butterfly is stamped on a
bit of Gelli Plate monoprint background.)

It's a fine day for some challenges, yes?

You make it sound oh so easy but I am sure it was far more involved than this.
A beautiful, Springtime piece of wearable art.
