Unity Butterfly

**This is my second post for the day.  For my CASology post please scroll down or 




Hello again!  I've got a two for one card this evening.  I used the colours from Dynamic Duos and the sketch from Unity's monthly challenge.  I love this oversized Unity butterfly.  There's so much texture on the wings and it embosses really well.  

We're off to the pub to see off one of my co-workers who is heading back to England after 6 years here.  :(  It won't be the same without her at work but I guess it's just one more reason to get over to the UK for a holiday!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Lucky Limeade, Pool Party, Basic Grey) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Woodgrain, diamonds & sentiment from Feb '13 KOM - Let Love Grow, Butterfly from Sept '12 KOM - The Vintage Touch) Unity Stamp Co
Inks:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Seafoam White) Ranger
Gems:  (Swimming Pool assortment) Doodlebug

This is such an unusual color combo, Jen - but you've worked it beautifully, or should I say butterfly-ly? Ha. Happy pubbing, kiddo.

Awesome as always, Jen, especially the embossing, of course! And I think you have to visit Canada again before you head to the UK. :P
