Lace Heart Butterfly Love

Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge 24
Here is my take on Taylor's sketch challenge found here. I turned the sketch upside down and used the heart from FLOURISHES Lace Heart stamp set for the butterfly wings. The image was stamped with Versamark then heat embossed with clear embossing powder on one of the Basic Grey Euphoria designer papers. I folded the ends in and attached to card underneath the wings.
The middle body piece and antennas are from FLOURISHES Cake Decorating 101 and sentiment is from FLOURISHED Words and stamped with Palette Landscape ink. I covered those pieces with my melon Spica pen. Click on picture for a larger view and to see the sparkle! Edges of paper and butterfly edges are distressed with Ranger Distress Inks, shabby shutters and tattered rose respectively.
I love the basic grey paper with the matching brads used on the hardware! The pearls are perfect for the butterfly and upper right hand corner! May Arts Scalloped edged ink satin ribbon and all these products are found at FLOURISHES. Hope you had a great weekend! We had a house showing, which meant cleaning up the art studio! I hate that! I am a very messy stamper and like everything out in sight! But into the closet it went for a few hours!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I really appreciate it! Have a great Monday!
HUGS,

Terrific card, Barb. I emailed you, but also wanted to try leaving the comment here. I'm delighted with the idea of using a heart stamp for the butterfly wings. I'll be remembering that!
