Delightful--Skipping Stone Sketch #64

I really enjoyed creating this card because I went outside my comfort zone. I tend to create simpler cards which will actually fit in an envelope. Tonight I wanted to add some 3-dimension with the butterfly. I began with vellum and my Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol Inks. I stamped two butterflies and cut them. I adhered one on stamped card stock and glued the second one on top at the body junction. I then added the other embellishments. I am happy with this new look.

Card stock: copper (Making Memories); purple and brown (The Paper Company)
Ink: Tim Holtz--Adironcack Alcohol Inks
Ribbon: Purple and black (Michael's)
Stamps: delightful ( ); musical background (Glitz Design); butterfly ( )
Jewels ( )
Punch (Fiskars)
