Sweet Stamps- Butterflies

It's another fun challenge at Sweet Stamps .  Our challenge theme for this week is Butterflies!
 The image is stamped and colored with Copics- then I added Sakura Gelly Roll Pen to highlight the flowers. I added Creative Inspirations paints spattering it (Ivory) onto the front of the card- in the center- not over the floral image. The butterflies are stamped and embossed, then painted with Pink and Beige CI paint, then highlighted with R22 and W1 Copic markers. I sponged a touch of In the Pink Shades Die ink around the border of the card. Love the Prima DP and added a couple of Sweetcuts die to add a touch of the pink tp the back layer.

HERE are the Sweet Stamps items I used on my card:
Floral Corner Wrap Image HERE
Fanciful Butterflies Set HERE
Butterfly Kisses sentiment HERE
Memento Black Tuxedo ink HERE
