LOC Double Delight

Who doesn't love butterflies - I just love to see them fluttering around our garden!  I can not resist these gorgeous butterflies from the Layers of Color Flutterescent art stamp set, it is just gorgeous! 

I have stamped the images, cut them out and coloured them using SU Chalks and a Blender Pen, you know I am going to say that I had to add Kindy Glitz to the wings, it just brings those wings to life!  This is one of the few times that the camera picked it up properly - yes, there is plenty of shimmer!

The wings have been popped up with foam dots, I love the dimension that this gives the card.

I have distressed the edges of the DP with scissors, as I am afraid that my Distressing Tool has not turned up anywhere...sigh...I am going through 'cold turkey' but will make do with the scissors for now!  That gorgeous flower is actually material and is from a Blog Candy I won from Abby - thanks Abby, I am savouring these!!  I finished off with Vintage Corners and Silver Pearls...to the corners and the body of the butterflies!
