Butterflies Three

Hello everyone,

Today's feminine French birthday card has taken me days to craft.  Not so much fun!

The printed paper is of unknown origin layered on a shimmery brushed gold also of unknown origin.  The images are Altenew Painted Butterflies stamped in Stampin' Up Early Espresso and More Mustard, and Close To My Heart Blush on a Vanilla of unknown origin.  The butterflies were die cut from the coordinating Altenew die.  The sentiment is Bonnidee French Wording #1 stamped in Early Espresso on more Vanilla and layered on more brushed gold.  The embellishments are Doodlebug mini pearls.

Finding inks that worked with this flower almost drove me insane.  I finally had to put this card aside otherwise it would have ended up in the garbage.  I finally settled on More Mustard and Blush and I think it works well.  I used the second impression on the butterfly in the bottom right to make it a little more pale and I think its pretty good.  The Blush isn't as much of a contrast as I'd hoped but sometimes, you just have to settle.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
