Another Butterfly

Hello Everyone!

First of all I'd like to give a warm welcome to my two new followers Kate and Lesley.  It would be really nice if you popped in to their blogs to see their lovely makes.

After making my previous butterfly card it occured to me that if I had done some embossing my card would have qualified for Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge.  So I made this card the following morning.

Although the colours are similar I used a different gelli plate print for the background. For this one I'd used some pearl acrylic paint.  I embossed the background with my Cuttlebug and rubbed some Black Soot distress ink over the raised areas.  It doesn't show as I then put on some mica powder which adhered to the wet Distress ink.

I used the same dies for the butterfly  and ovals.  The sentiment is another by Paula Pascal.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
The Butterfly Challenge where the theme this time is E for embossing
Crafting From The Heart #81

Happy Crafting to you all.
