Butterfly Drift on Black and White

Hi, Friends.....

I am back with another card for the Winnie & Walter Share the Love Week Challenges where we are invited to make cards inspired by the wonderful design team creations.  

The designers used Winnie & Walter and Pinkfresh Studio Felicity products, but that wasn't required for us to participate. 

I was inspired by Mayuri's card in this post.  I love her brightly-colored birdies on the black and white floral background.  
Here is Mayuri's lovely card ------>

I didn't have birds, but I did have butterflies and some black and white patterned paper that I used.

Here's my take. 

I apologize for the TERRIBLE photo.  Not only did one of the shiny silver butterflies reflect the orange shirt I was wearing, but the entire thing just did not photograph in focus.  Arrrgh.  That's why I am keeping the size so much smaller than I usually have on my posts. But it is what it is.... (sigh)

Supplies used include:
Bo Bunny patterned paper
Sentiment stamp from my stash
WOW! Embossing Powder - Opaque Bright White Regular
Butterflies and sequins from my stash
Scraps from my stash for sentiment panel and matting
Splatters of Dylusions Ink Spray in Pomegranate Seed

Thank you so much for coming to visit.  Your kindness brightens my day!!  :)

  5. Those butterflies have to be some of the coolest things I've seen in awhile! They're so shiny and opalescent (which, yes, makes them a bugger to photograph). Thanks for sharing your creativity with us at STAMPlorations!
