Hi all, today I have a card to share with you and to enter into some challenges.
I am really chuffed with myself, why?.......because I have actually used a stencil and distress inks to create my own background, yay, I am a happy bunny with the outcome.
I stencilled the butterfly mask then mounted it onto red card stock, I used the same card stock plus some black for the butterfly corners and central circles.  I have used Memory Box Butterfly Corner Die cut and my new Die Namics stitched circle dies, I stamped the main butterfly with Versafine then embossed with clear embossing powder I coloured with Graph it Markers then cut it out and mounted it centrally, I used little pearls for the stamens, I also added some Viva Decor to the die cut butterflies then finally added a sentiment.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I thank you so much for coming to visit and an extra big thank you for leaving me a comment, I will be seeing you all later but until then have a lovely day and a great weekend.
