Monochromatic Butterfly Card

I love making these cards - just white with a hint of one colour. This time I have used Broken China Distress inks to tint the edges of the flowers and leaves which were punched out of white cardstock. The circle frame was made using nesties, the image was stamped and embossed and then tinted with the ink and some stickles glitter glue added. I used part of a stamp to stamp the floral sprays at one side. The sentiment was made on the computer. A few pearls and tiny butterflies were added to finish it of.

I have entered this into the following challenges
Penny's paper crafty - so long as it flies
Flutterby Wednesday - butterfly, fairy or angel
Pear Tree designs - free for all
One Stitch at a Time - embellish it
