Butterflies

Hi everyone!  My card today combines 3 challenges:  the Midnight Madness sketch #66 (MMSC66)  - sketch; Digital Tuesday Challenge (DTC#71) - to use butterflies and/or lace; and the SCS Color Challenge (CC282) -- blushing bride, riding hood red, and early espresso.
My main panel was printed with the "priscillastyles" butterfly image on GP white.  Both my image panel and background DSP were crumbled before sponging with riding hood red, as well as antique linen and corduroy distress inks.  What a fun technique!  I layered the image panel with blushing bride and riding hood red before adding the lace and adhering to the card base with dimensionals.  Really had fun playing today, but I sure wish I had a set of triangular dies... it would have made things a lot easier!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Supplies: Stamps - "priscillastyles" butterfly; Paper - SU! riding hood red, early espresso, blushing bride, Tim Holtz DSP, GW white, generic ivory; Ink - SU! riding hood red, Tim Holtz distress ink in antique linen & brushed corduroy for sponging, Copic Markers & pencils with gamsol for coloring; Accessories - Cuttlebug corner die, Sizzix EF, SU! embossllt butterflies die, Offray lace, pearls from my stash, and dimensionals.
