Vellum Butterflies for Crafter's Companion.

Hello to everyone.  I would like to share  a sweet card with you featuring the beautiful Sheena Douglass butterflies from the Flying Colours Stamp set for Crafter's Companion.  I have inked the butterfly images onto vellum, embossed with clear embossing powder, coloured with Spectrum Noir pencils and fussy cut.

List of materials used to make this card:

Sheena Douglass A Little Bit Scenic A5 Stamp Set - Flying Colours Stamp

Crafters Companion Die'sire Sentimentals Rubber Stamps - Vintage

Pearls, brads and pearl string are from my stash
Clear embossing powder

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges: - My Butterfly Dreams die.  It is so versatile and useful.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post and look at my blog.
