Shimmering Butterflies

Hello everyone,
for the newest challenge at the Crafty Cardmakers with the theme "Butterflies" I created this card as an inspiration:

Using a stencil I created the background in an ombre fashion and went on die cutting all the butterflies next. I die cut the big butterfly from some sturdy vellum and die cut the intricate design from the shimmery cardstock next. I did put "Stick It" behind the paper before die-cutting because I am really not good at adhering down tiny things.

I really love the effect the paper gives. Depending on how you tilt it in the light it catches the light differently and thus the card never really looks quite the same... 

I added the small butterflies as extra-embellishment and in order to give the eye something to move along with - and yes, I admit it, because I love the paper so much and wanted even more on my card! I hope you are going to join us for our "Butterfly" challenge at the Crafty Cardmakers! Please stay safe, have a wonderful week and happy crafting!!! Yours Maike
