Irish Blessing

   For this card I cut and embossed pale teal core'dinations cardstock using the Tonic Monarch arch butterfly die set. I attached this to darker teal core'dinations cardstock and then sprayed it with Crafter's Companion iridescent glitter (although the photo does not really show this) and mounted it onto a white card base which I had cut to fit the contours of the design. I then die cut three butterflies from teal mirri card and attached them with glue gel and glued mini gems around the arch.
   The stamped verse is from a Chocolate Baroque stamp set and I mounted it onto teal mirri card which had been cut cut using a Spellbinders decorative labels eight die. The three surrounding butterflies were from the same set of stamps and were coloured using Promarkers.
