Sunflower Butterfly

It is Shirley posting today. Here is the card I made for the challenge #96 Texture. We are suppose to use an embossing folder on our cards to give them texture.

I started with a white card base. I cut a layer of blue paper as the next layer. It is from the Graphic 45 French Country.
I took another layer of white, and used an embossing folder by Anna Griffin called Matelasse.

I used a circle die to cut a circle from the main white embossed layer. I put a piece of Graphic 45 French Country paper behind the circle, and used the scalloped circle die to cut a black decorative edge for it. The butterfly was made using the Memory Box Willoughby Butterfly Wings.

The border was cut using a Our Daily Bread Design Beautiful Borders die. I layered it with white, blue and black.

For the finishing touch I added Silver Rhinestones to the butterfly and the border.

Thanks for dropping by today. Come back again, and don't forget to make a card, so you can join us for the challenge!

This is such a stunning card - I really like the touch of blue with the white - and especially like the gorgeous colors for the butterfly and the border. Thanks for sharing - and you may see a CASE along the way!
