LIM week 16 Butterfly/butterflies and butterflies and butterflies

This week the challenge on Less is More is butterfly or butterflies, you will see why I extended the title in my header in just a moment! For this card I used some acetate and adhered gilding flakes to it, then used the SU punch to cut out the butterflies. However, because I wanted them to have a straighter edge I then cut the top wing with scissors. I stamped a flourish in gold ink behind and added a PTI sentiment also in gold ink.
That was a few hours ago now! I am home alone and so I made the most of crafting on a Saturday night....
Take 2 - this time on a smaller card.
 
Take 3-On pink pearlescent cardstock. A doily stamped with a PTI image and the edges of the doily inked.
Take 4 -PTI frame and sentiment

Take 5-Continuing the earlier idea, but this time the circle is cut out with a nestie and acetate placed behind, the sentiment and flower are inside the card.

Take 6 -Probably should have stopped here but decided to use this embossing folder. Looked good till I added too dark a colour I think?


OK-crafted out LOL!
