You Make Me Smile, Butterfly

One more project before I turn off the craft room light for the day.

I watched this video and made this card tonight.

Stampin' Up - Swallotail #129216 and Summer Silhouettes #126447
Eembossed with Recollections Black after stamping image with Versamark
Heated with Marvy Heat Tool
Inked with Stampin' Up inks:
Tempting Turquoise
Positively Pink
More Mustard
Background inked with Green Garden (double stamping for faded look)
Cardz TV Stamps - "Good Friends" stamp set inked with Memento Tuxedo Black ink

Yes, I got some yellow ink outside the lines, 
but let's just chalk that up to artistic impression, shall we?  :)

Don't forget that the challenge theme for Paper Playtime right now is 
EMBOSSING - Wet or Dry. Come play with us!
