Blue Butterfly

For today's card I have used;

solid and printed butterfly stamps from Stamp To Your Arts Content
blue & lilac chalk ink pads
white card stock
lumieres in blue,green and purple
butterfly punch
blue fibre and blue elastic.

I created my background on my main white card using both butterfly stamps and the chalk ink pads.
I then stamped the word butterfly stamp on to acetate and coloured the back with lumieres.
Then stipple blue & purple on to the solid butterfly, stamp and cut out.
Attach acetate butterfly to solid butterfly using sticky pads on the body only and attach to card on sticky pads.
Stamp greeting onto vellum and attach to card then place two punch out butterfly's as if it is holding the vellum in place.
Tie elastic and fibers to spine of the card.

Hope you enjoy the card!
