patchwork butterfly

This birthday card for a friend uses stamps from the new Elusive Images patchwork butterfly plate, and backing paper from the Artylicious decadent brocade cd. The flourishes and words were stamped and embossed in silver, and the huge butterfly was embossed in denim blue on acetate, then coloured with promarkers - had intended to glitter it, but ran out of time before the birthday! The butterfly is only stuck down along the body, so the wings can flutter a bit.
This card fits the challenge for Playdate Cafe (blues) and also for Crafty Ann's challenge (embossing)as well as Gingersnap (also embossing)
