Butterfly Challenge #77

Hello everybody,

I am joining in a challenge I've just found, it's call Butterfly Challenge.  Sounds like fun right?!  For this challenge you must butterfly somewhere on your paper craft project, and play by the challenge theme.  Click Here to check the rules.

Butterfly Challenge #77 +F is for Faux and/or the colour Jasmine (Faux is for a Faux technique, and the color Jasmine is a creamy yellow, see reference Here).

I use a Faux Embossing technique on my card.

To create the faux embossing, I die cut the butterfly (Concord & 9th - Floral & Flutter Dies) multiple times and adhere to the same color card base.  To complete the card I added hand rolled flowers, and die cut leaves (Hero Arts Fancy Die - Spring Branch).  I think this card could be used for various occasion, so I would leave the sentiment until I need it.

I want to give a shout out to two of my craft friends, Barb Ghig and Karen C.   They both sent me supplies that I used on this project.  Thank you ladies!!
