Social Butterflies

Hello friends - always nice to have you visit.  Today I am sharing a card created Mixed Media card using Penny Black Inc. Social Butterflies stamp set - these are some of my favourite butterflies - designed by my lovely friend Laura Kirste.

I am really enjoying creating my own backgrounds - patterned or collage.  For this card I have stamped the butterflies first, then sponged the layer using Imagine Crafts Inks and stamped random images on it.  The butterflies have been coloured using the beautiful summertime colours of Radiant Neon Inks and a Sponge Dauber - so easy, as well as being effective.   Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner and 3D Foam Squares have been used on this card. I think this card would be suitable for so many occasions - or just because!
