A screwed up butterfly!

I hope you have had a good week? Mine has definitely had ups and downs, but I have some quality time with Mike to look forward to this weekend!

Today I am sharing a card I made on Wednesday. I really do have a thing for the Butterfly Framelits at the moment, so here they are again!

I really do love how delicate this particular one is...very lacy looking! I did something a little different with this one...I die cut the top butterfly then drew round it and cut out the bottom solid one. Then, whilst I was rubbing out the pencil lines, I annoyingly caught the edge and creased it! But, then I had an idea...I screwed the butterfly up, as you would, but nope, I didn't throw it away!

Instead, I inked the butterfly with Melon Mambo, and it really brought out the creases to look like folds of the wings! I also inked the die cut one, and then rubbed with Versamark and heat embossed with Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Emboss. 

The window was created by using the Window Frames Collection Framelits, and I stamped the flowers from Painted Petals in the window. I finished with Rhinestone Basics Jewels and the sentiment from Butterfly Basics, which I fussy cut out using my paper snips.

I should say that this card is an A5 card, which is why I can get all the yummy white space with such a big butterfly!

I have a couple of challenges I would like to enter my card into...

I hope you have a lovely day today and a fab weekend planned!
