Flutterby Butterfly

A 50th birthday card using some fab K&Co papers. I stamped and embossed the butterfly in gold onto the patterned paper. I then cut it out and added some tiny gold buttons and some gold wire. A few nestie circles edged in china blue distress ink to hold the butterfly and a computer generated sentiment. I also used a sketch from Friday Sketchers. The edges of the paper were distressed using a Tim Holtz distressing tool , distress ink in china blue and then some stickles glitter glue.

I am entering this into the following challenges
The stamp man - distressing
Stamp, scrap and doodle - anything goes
Catch the bug - happy birthday
Penny's Paper Crafty - anything goes
