Discover Your Wings


I took my inspiration for this card from this week's Less Is more challenge, which is to use a butterfly or butterflies in your creation.  I embossed the frame on Gina K's Pure Luxury White cardstock. This Provocraft EF is made for CAS creations!  The butterfly from Taylored Expressions Discover Your Wings collection is heat embossed with gold embossing powder on a sheet of BasicGrey Wisteria DP then cut out and mounted on the card with 2 mini glue dots.  The sentiment is stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black ink.  I thought about adding a line of tiny purple rhinestones beneath the word "wings", but I resisted the temptation and left it very clean and very simple. I like it a lot!

Thank you for coming by today!
