Spellbinders - Enchancing Elements - Shades of Blue

This card is created using  the Spellbinders newly released Dies -  when I run one off I usually run off a few more so I have some on hand.  That is the case when I created my card for the Diamond Anniversary: Sneak peek and Giveaway

I am using the same Dies - the patterned has been cut using the Gold Labels One  Spellbinders® Nestabilities® Imperial Gold Enhancing Elements dies and the Rounded Squares Nestabilities®.  The butterflies are from the Les Papillions Two Shapeabilities®.   I have used the Faux Letterpress Technique with the Gold Labels One Nestabilities and
IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® VersaMagic™ Chalk Pigment Ink in Aquatic Splash.

 The sentiment is from the JustRite® Papercraft Kindness stamp set and has been stamped using
IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® VersaFine™ Archival Pigment Ink in Onyx Black.  I have also used Seam Binding, an altered Vintage Button and Recycled Lace.  I have also used Want2Scrap© pearls and Scrapbook by Adhesives by 3L - E-Z Runner and 3D Foam Squares, along with a paper rose.
