Less Is More - Butterflies

Butterflies are one of my favourite stamps to use so I was as happy as can be when I saw that the new challenge over on Less Is More was to use a butterfly or butterflies.  I stayed as CAS as I could and went with only one gorgeous butterfly!

Paper: Hero Arts Notecard; PTI; Neenah Solar White; My Minds Eye Ink: Prismacolour pencils; Versafine Onyx Black; Memento:Grape
Stamps: Hero Arts; Technique Tuesday
Other: Corner Chomper; Gem (Recollections); Stickles

Nothing to it.  The gem was coloured with a Copic marker.  I added some stickles to the round spots on the butterfly.  I lifted the one wing with some dimensional dots. I love that this card took me about 15 minutes to make, that does not happen very often!
