Watercolor Butterfly

I am so excited I made a card today!!!!!!!!
I feel like it has been a long time since I actually made a card.

The other day I was messing around with my Stampin Up
set Watercolor Wings which also has matching die set.

I stamped the butterfly in 3 steps (3 stamps) using Kaleidcolor Ink Pad
Pastel, to give a watercolor look.  If you are not familiar with them they have 5 different colors in one ink pad.  
I was so surprised when I pulled it out that it actually 
still had ink since I have had it for 15+ years.  
After stamping it I cut it with the matching die.
Then I just layered papers in colors from the butterfly and
embossed the pink layer with a butterfly embossing folder to add some
texture to this card.  
You can't see it in the picture but the pink is sparkley cause
I misted it with some homemade glimmer mist I have.
The sentiment is a GinaK Design stamp. 

Here the butterfly close up.

I created this card following one of the sketches on the Crafting Circle message board for the March Monthly Sketch Challenge so you have lots of time to join in if you choose to.

I will also enter this in the challenges at
Pink and Main - Spring Theme 
Simon Says Stamping - Touchy Feely

Thanks for stopping by, hopefully will post a couple more cards in a few days.
