BUTTERFLIES AT LESS IS MORE.......!

Hope you are well lovely bloggers.
I have missed the last two challenges at LESS IS MORE, and as I'm starting to get withdrawal symptoms I really HAD to join in this week - Chrissie and Mandi have asked us to use a Butterfly/Butterflies - and here is my little card!
*******

The card measures 4" square, and the Butterfly (from Elusive Images) is stamped onto white shrink plastic using various shades of Staz-on, then coloured with Sakura JellyRoll glitter pens before shrinking. Now, I'm sure anyone who has tried shrink plastic knows how difficult it is to get a totally flat result, so that's why mine has lumps and bumps - hope you don't mind!!
Edges have been inked with a Krylon Gold pen.  
The background stamp is from SU and the wording was a freebie from Craft Stamper magazine.
**********
I would like to enter my card into the following Challenge:-
A Spoonfull of Sugar - Things with Wings.
Thanks for popping by - love to all ~

Beautiful card Sylvia and the colours are wonderful. small tip on the shrink plastic, once it has shrunk place an acrylic block on top for a few seconds and it should be flat don`t worry it won`t stick to it. I love how it looks anyway who has ever seen a flat butterflu :O)... Chris xx
