I love the butterflies from this Hero Arts set called Antique Engravings. The butterflies were embossed on the plain white background of this card with clear embossing powder, and then a color wash was spritzed over it to create the background colors. The colored butterflies were stamped on a separate piece of white cs, painted in with Twinkling H2O's and cut out when dry. I layered them over the embossed butterfly shapes, and added the ribbon, stamped FLY on a piece of patterned paper, and drew a rectangle around it to highlight the words. I cut that out and glued it above the ribbon.
I am entering this in several challenges:
