Metallic Butterflies


Good morning!  I'm back with some cards I made yesterday.  I wanted to join in with the Just Us Girls Metallics challenge and the new palette at ColourQ just happens to include silver - perfect pairing!  I pulled out Some Papertrey Ink butterflies and sentiment stamps and created not one but 3 cards.  I didn't think about how much of a nightmare the first card would be to photograph but I finally got this shot that preserves the silver shine of the cardstock pretty well.
















Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink (Certainly celery, Coastal Cabana, Basic Black) Stampin' Up, (Jade) Bazzill, (Silver)
Stamps:  (Sentiments from Beautiful Butterflies) Papertrey Ink
Inks:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Dies:  (Butterflies) Papertrey Ink, (Flag) Reverse Confetti
Gems:  Recollections
