Beautiful Butterflies

I bought three sets of Kanban stamps at a show at the weekend and this is the first chance I've had to play using 2 of them, the text and Butterfly stamp has been coloured and distressed using only Tim Holtz distress inks, I then added a layer of 3d glossy accents to the butterflies and mounted onto gold card, The DP is a left over piece from a Kraftyhand CD ...  too nice to discard,I also stamped the flowers and flourishes on to this using memento ink added a bow and a sentiment.
I am entering this card into the following challenges monochrome things Depth of distress ink ...summer and butterflies

Beautiful card, love the combination of the backing paper and over-stamping it. The text behind the butterflies is the perfect back ground for them and then the butterflies themselves glorious. thank you for sharing with us at Craft-Room Challenge XOXO Zoe
