Happy Butterflies

Here's a card I made over the weekend . . .after spending quite a bit of time clearing off my craft table. Whew! It was way out of control. . . it was so cluttered that when I picked up an ink pad, something would fall off the table!
Happy Butterflies stamp by Magenta stamped in Spanish Olive VersaMagic Ink on cream cardstock. I used PrismaColor pencils to do some shading. I blended a little bit of Antique Linen Distress ink for the background behind the butterflies and edged the cardstock with Cornucopia VersaMagic ink.
I then mounted the butterflies onto a light green panel. Added Swirl Organdy ribbon to another cream panel and mounted the butterflies onto that and then onto a yellow card. The dots along the edge are Gold Liquid Pearls.
And one final detail that that picture doesn't show at all are the wings of the center butterfly. . .I used a craft knife to cut around them and used foam tape to pop them up a bit.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope to have more projects to post during the week now that my table is cleared off and I have a spot to work.
I'm currently working on a journal page. Julie posted a great tutorial on her blog. . . it's a five part tutorial and she has some great tips in there. Be sure to check it out!
