Butterfly Smile

Butterflies always make me smile, and this butterfly stamp set is one of my favourites. 

I made this to play in the inspiration challenge at Splitcoaststampers where we visited a Pinterest site all about Macarons and Meringues. Who would have thought there was such a site? In any event, I was inspired by this display of ombre cookies.

I started by stamping the background stamp and heat embossing with white embossing powder. I then brushed on the inks using Tim Holtz Distress Inks Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Festive Berries. I die cut the panel with the stitched rectangles die. For the butterfly, I stamped and heat embossed with white embossing powder and sponged on the spun sugar to the wings and festive berries to the body, then styled and attached to the card using glossy accents for the strength, as this will be mailed. I added the sentiment,  which I sponged with festive berries and a few sequins scattered about to finish my card.
I hope you enjoy this card and thank you for 
visiting today.
