WSC102 ~*Embossed Butterflies*~ long card

I used the layout of Beate's WSC102 sketch challenge for this card ~ it's a long card and I turned it sideways.

I stamped the Hero Arts Heart Butterfly three times in versamark, then inked it again in versamark then in Ruby Red and stamped it on a seperate piece.. I then embossed them all with clear embossing powder.

Where the three butterflies were stamped/embossed, I sponged on ink in three colors that were the card stock colors: So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Ruby Red.

The heart butterfly was cut out, then inked all over with versamark and I took some SU Irridescent Ice Embossing Powder all over it and heat set it.

I cut out the circle piece using a nestabilities circle die and then a nestabilities scallop circle in CC. I used a piece of polk dotted paper from some retired SU Cutie Pie paper.

The sentiment is from SU Flight of the Butterfies (or butterfly, can't remember!) stamp set.

I embossed the stripe in the center using a Cuttlebug folder, at first I made it too wide for my liking so I trimmed some off.. I used a portion of that on the SS piece, then used some wide grossgrain CC ribbon and some SS grossgrain ribbon.

The scallop border was made using a SU scallop border punch.

Two things I used on this card that I hadn't in a good long while.. some eyelets and my cropadile... but as always this card has Dimensionals on it.. love em'!

have a great weekend!

thanks for looking ~

have a great airborne day!

God Bless All Our Military.. each and every one of them
