Butterfly Congratulations

I have a lot of pink card for you today. As you know I love this butterfly stamp in pink by Deep Red Stamps because I've used it HEREHERE, and HERE

I stamped the butterfly on to Recollections white cardstock with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed it with silver Hero Arts embossing powder. I also embossed another one with different embossing powder to see which one I thought covered and embossed better. With the better embossed butterfly, I used a blending tool and distress ink {Worn Lipstick} to create an ombre effect. Then fussy cut it out and sprayed it with water mixed with Perfect Pearls to give it some sparkle. I cut down the other butterfly image and inked the edges of the cardstock. 

The card base is 4 x 5 1/2 pre-made by Recollections and I adhered a border die cut sticker by Crate Papers to both sides. The patterned paper is from a stack however I bought it at an outlet store and it had no cover on it to identify the manufacturer. It's thin paper which makes me think it's not DCWV. Anyway, I adhered the patterned paper to the center and then I taped the other butterfly to the top portion. Then I added a gem by Eyelet Outlet to the left lower corner and a sentiment sticker by Karen Foster below it. I adhered the ombre butterfly on top of the other butterfly with foam adhesive by EK Success.
