Meg's Butterfly and Blog Candy Alert!

Hello Everybody!

I have been away from my computer for a while but am back and playing in my craft room again.  Yippee for me!!

This Easel card was made for for the gals over at Dolce Stamps and Cards.  They sent me this wonderful butterfly stamp from My Heart Stamps for You.  This is one quick and easy card to make! This butterfly looks so elegant embossed in Judikin's Gold Detail Embossing Powder!

How I made this card.....

  I Stamped the Fabulous Flourish from Hero Arts  in Versamark and embossed it with Judikin's Gold Detail Embossing Powder.

I embossed three butterflies and cut them out.

I glued 2 butterflies to the  flourish and bent the wings up to give it some dimension.

I layered the image on some gold mirror paper.

For the sentiment panel I used Anytime Messages from Hero Arts and also embossed this with Judikin's Gold Detail Embossing Powder.

Glued the last butterfly onto the sentiment panel.

Added some Rhinestones from the Holly Jolly Jewels to the butterflies and a Satin Ribbon bow in the top corner.

I popped up the sentiment panel with some EK 3D Dots
