Stamp Simply Gone Askew #140


The challenge this week at Stamp Simply is to place something "askew" on our cards. I love the sentiment from DRS stamps and thinks that qualifies, but I also put the darker pink and white pieces "askew" before I added the butterfly also at an angle. This is one of those cards that look so much better in person than on the photo. The smaller pieces are also embossed before adding the butterfly which is an older SU stamp that I embossed with black sparkly embossing powder on velum, colored from the back with Copics and cut out.

The butterfly embossing folder is a new one I was so excited to find from a new company (to me) Crafts-Too and is available with some other very cool new ones at Cropstop. I ordered four new ones (including a new heart one from Cuttlebug that I have never seen, but I think was an European exclusive) and there was no shipping or handling costs and I got them in just a couple days! You will see them in my cards in the next few weeks.
