Butterfly Delight

Hi all, I now have my Laptop back, I collected it this morning after it received it's annual service.  I can now get back to visiting you all, I would like to thank you for all your lovely comments while I have been off air.
I made a card today for the following challenges:

For my card I used some Amethyst card stock and made a 4x4 card base then used my Hougie board to make the easel shape.  The topper I made by using some graph paper to draw an Art Deco shape then used the template on some Lilac Silk art card and embossed the shape with the Hougie board. I used some silver mirri card and Amethyst card for the sides and central panel.
I added some Lilac taffeta ribbon and bow, I punched a border and added a stamped sentiment, the Butterfly is wood mounted which I inked with Onyx Versafine ink, stamped twice then coloured with an Amethyst promarker, I added flowers for the antenna. and 3d'd the butterfly.
I hope you like my card and have enjoyed your visit, I hope to see you soon, Hugs.
