Another Mixed Media Butterfly

Hi there. It's a glorious sunny day in Melbourne and Spring is in the air after a long cold winter, so I thought I'd share a Spring-like card today.

This is also a reminder for the Mixed Media Card Challenge - you still have a few days to enter the challenge. This month the theme is ** Butterflies **, with the option to include gold in your card.

To begin I embossed the panel and then stamped the background, masking off the edges. Then I added a few splatters of ink.
I decided to use some of my beautiful Japanese paper for the die-cut butterfly and some gold cord knotted for the butterfly's body. The leaves have some shimmer added with Wink of Stellar.

You should pop over to the Mixed Card Card Challenge to get more inspiration from the team and you have until 25 August to enter the challenge here
