Butterfly on flowers

   I printed this butterfly paper some time last year and it has been lying in my stash box ever since. I matted it onto dark green mirri card. After colouring a ribbon using a Promarker pen I wrapped it round the matted layers before attaching it to white card.
   The image is from one of the stamps in Chocolate Baroque's briar rose butterfly set and was coloured using Promarkers. I cut it out using a Spellbinders scalloped oval die and while still in the die I dusted the background with blue and green distress inks. I then offset it on another piece of dark green mirri card cut out using the same die.
   Finally the sentiment stamped using a Flowersoft floral sentiment was matted onto gold mirri card and attached to the ribbon.

   I would like to enter thhis card into the following challenges:

I'm glad you kept the paper in your stash and have used it here. The stamp looks perfect with it and I like your idea of off setting with a second oval in the mirror card. Thankyou for fluttering by. Hugs Mrs A. (Butterfly challenge).
