Mauve Moment

Images are not safe on my desk - I love this butterfly from the Layers of Color retired Joyful Noise clear art stamp set.

The butterfly is stamped twice, coloured using Prismacolor Pencils and Odourless Mineral Spirits and popped up on foam tape.  Some shimmer has been added, along with a large bling.

Layered into a Spellbinders Classic Frame Die, cut using the Grand Calibur.  Adding some lace along the top of the frame.

Quick and easy - I would love to hear what you think!

This card is for the following challenges:
Deep Ocean Challenge - Use punches & dies
Art With No Boundaries - Anything Goes
 Love to Create Anything Goes
