Sequins and a Moth

Welcome back - it's great to know you have visited.

Believe it or not, this beautiful image is of a Silk Moth, not a butterfly!
It was manufactured by the now defunct Layers Of Color, and is one of my original stamps that I bought from overseas,  and I still love it. 


I stamped it directly onto the card base and gold embossed it before painting it with Twinkling H20's.  The camera was unable to capture the gorgeous sheen the finished image has.


Some 'plum' sequins and a simply stamped and embossed greeting, layered over some lace, finished the outside of the card


The left hand side of the insert in the card was stamped with the same image in a soft pink ink.

I am linking this to:

This is an amazing image and I really love how you used it! An gorgeous card - so very elegant and I love the lace and embossed sentiment! And the sequins are a lovely addition to it! You made me happy to link to our theme at Moo Mania & More.
It counts as a butterfly for sure!
Thank you for joining us Maxine! Have a happy start of the weekend!

Moths are indeed as elegant as butterflies just not quite as showy!
So pleased you joined us for our 6th birthday celebrations at ATSM. :)
