Butterfly Plus K is for Kraft Card &/or Kaleidoscope

Hi, Friends......

I am here with my usual last minute entry into Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge,where this time she asks us to use butterflies along with a kraft card base and/or a kaleidoscope effect.  My take on the kaleidoscope effect was using a brilliant autumn-colored Gelato background I had lying dormant in my stash from several years ago and using my Waffle Flower - Doily Circle die with white cardstock.

This fabulous magenta butterfly made of feathers is from a thrift store grab bag.  LOVE!!  I think it goes great with the bright and wonderful autumn colors.  My sentiment is from the Altenew - Label Love stamp set.  Looks like label maker tape, doesn't it?  So fun!  I stamped it with Versafine ink and heat embossed it with clear powder.  I put it all on a kraft card base as suggested by Mrs. A.

I adore how this card turned out and I hope you like it, too!!!  Thank you for stopping by and for leaving your sweet comments.  You make my day!!!

GORGEOUS!! I didn't even know Gelatos could be so brilliant. That orange and yellow color combo is cheery and beautiful against the white doily circle die. Your magenta feather butterfly is an additional bold splash of color (and look, he has eyes). Love this one!
