Butterfly Garden

My friend Heather let me borrow her stamp set Inspired by Nature about two weeks ago and I had (as of earlier today) yet to use it. I wanted to return it to her, so I figured I better get going. I made about 6 cards using this same set, I haven't quite finished them all, but here is the first.

I call this one Butterfly Garden. I love the white on the black and then I bordered it with taken with teal cardstock. Then I wasn't sure what to do. I was playing around with color combos and decided that a nice bright yellow would be good. So I stamped the butterflys in black on the current sale-a-bration DSP. I chose the DSP because there was a little bit of different shades that could show through. I then embossed the butterflys with gold emboss powder and cut them out. The butterflys are from the Dream's Du Joir set and the hostess set God's Beauty. I like the effect it created.

Oh and again, this one will work for the flourishes timeless tuesday challenge-
