Pink butterfly

A quick thinking of you I made with a few challenges in mind. 

and at

My clean and simple card...

A closeup of the butterfly so you can see the ombre and sparkle!

The card was finished pretty quickly. Starting with the background I used gray ink for a tone on tone background with a stencil. The panel was a scrap paper that I stamped with the butterfly and sentiment, then used a small circle punch to add the decorative corners. On another scrap I stamped and colored the butterfly again with some copics before fussy cutting it. It's glued to the panel by it's body while the wings are attached with foam squares for dimension. One the glue was dry I added clear Wink of Stella over the intire butterfly.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!
