Warm hello's to all of you who call by.
This card was made with the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge (#38), in mind.
I was pleased with my efforts - until I saw the Midnight Madness Sketch up close and realised that I had put more than the required amount of bling on - call it artistic licence!!
The centre butterfly and the corner butterflies were both from the Layers of Color stamp set Flutterescent, and I embossed them with silver detail embossing powder, then added chalk for colour - pink only on the centre one as it was on the lemon card, and yellow over the butterfly on the pink card in the corners, which made it glow a little like stained glass against the light.
The circle was cut and distressed and sponged with Whisper Ink in rich plum, the bling added and it was set aside while I cut and sponged the lemon, and stamped and embossed the sentiment.
The dp is part of a sheet that I have had in my stash for a loooong time - it was one of the original pieces of dp that I bought..... it was almost too nice to use!! Again it was sponged with the rich plum ink, as was the base card, which is a lovely rich, dark pink, rather than red.
When I assembled it all I popped the butterfly up on dimensional tape, cut down to size - a wee bit fiddly, to say the least, but it gave it a lovely raised look to it, as though it might fly off the page :-) I hope it doesn't!!
The light on this photo does not do the colour justice, but I was very happy with the overall look of this card!
Thanks for calling by, and I do love hearing from you when you leave a comment.
