Love Is Like A Butterfly

Hi all, hope you're all well.  The sun is shining here in West Yorkshire YAY!...I have done some laundry and it's drying nicely.  How sad am I?

For today's card, I used a butterfly stamp by K&Company.  It's in a set called 'Lotus Floral'...I've had these stamps for years and never used them. I coloured with Aqua Markers and then sprayed several layers of Spray and Shine to give an enamel effect. I formed the body from Fimo then added some liquid pearls and wire antenna.


All the embossing on my card was done with M-Bossabilities - 'So Trendy' folder. My frame and sentiment label are Spellbinders - Labels Twenty-Two and Fancy Tags Two.  The sentiment is by Flourishes 'Butterflies and Blossoms'.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges...

Craft Your Passion - Lots of Texture
Flutter By Wednesday - Sketch with a Butterfly
Flourishes 'Timeless Tuesday' - Bingo (Line Down - Bling, Die Cut, Emboss) 

Thank you for stopping by xx

Wow Sasha, what a fabulous card. Love how you layered the Nestie frames, and the pop of colour from the butterfly is stunning against the white.
We have sunshine all day here in this part of WY too - what a wonderful change from all the rain we have had!

Have a happy week - Sylvia xx
