Just Another Butterfly Card...

Hello everyone,

I had an idea of this card in my head as I woke up this morning, and it would have bugged me all day long, if I hadn't made it. So I tweaked my timeline for today a bit and made it!

This card has couple layers of stenciled and heat embossed cardstock with distressed edges, some dried baby's breath flowers, four layers of inked and heat embossed butterflies and some hand made flowers from my stash...

You can see all the layers of the butterfly...

Flowers tucked in here and there...

I wish I knew how to take better pictures, so that you can actually see the heat embossed flourish on the butterfly's wing...

I would like to enter this card into following challenges:

Studio 75 Challenge #7 "Butterfly"

Let's Craft and Create Challenge #103 Butterflies or Birds
