Make it Monday #111 Take 2!

I know - another challenge card... yay for me!Yesterday afternoon I was trying out PTI's Beautiful Butterflies - finally. Life has been busy and I had to put it aside for a little while. Regardless I have a birthday card to make for a particular girl - and I thought the butterflies would make her smile. I had embossing powder still on my drawing table (with a million other things.... but I digress...) so I started stamping and embossing. For the butterfly panel - I initially stamped a few butterflies in Versamark then watercolored using the Sweet Blush reinker - leaving the white butterflies. I set that aside until this morning. Then I stamped again in Versamark and watercolored using the Hibiscus Burst reinker - leaving some sweet blush colored butterflies. I think you'll have to click on the photo to see the detail. I diecut the one large butterfly using cardstock and vellum and stamped on the vellum (with Raspberry Fizz ink) then clear embossed it. (The polka dots are from Polka Dot Basics.) I glued the two butterflies together added a button with some embroidery floss and the little attenae are some paper jewelry cord. I grabbed 2 more buttons, added floss and attached them to the sentiment - which is from Stylish Sentiments: Birthday. I originally planned to stitch on both sides of the panel - but my sewing machine had other ideas (rrrrr). However, my recipient won't be any the wiser :-)
Have a good one!

No digressing here Tracy this is stunning! I do love anything pink! I know about the stitching for me its a sure way to mess up my card. Funny thing is I sew very well just not on cards. Beautiful watercoloring !
