Butterfly Encouragement Card

I haven't played with my Brusho Coloured Crystals in a very long time and finally had a chance recently to create this card with a Brusho background and a new set of butterfly stamps and dies from Hampton Arts. I sprinkled several colors of Brushos on a piece of watercolor paper and spritzed them with Tattered Angels gold spray to activate the colors and leave a touch of sparkle. When the piece was dry, I embossed it with a new 3D embossing folder from Stampin' Up. Then I cut it into inchies and attached them to a blue piece of cardstock. (This is the sketch we were challenged to use for my monthly card club.) I stamped the butterfly on a piece of watercolor dp and cut it out with the matching die. The beautiful sentiment is from the same set from Hampton Arts. I added some jewels and Nuvo Shocking Pink Glow Drops to the butterfly and popped her up on pop dots to attach.

The first piece of Brusho beauty I tried to emboss ended up de-bossed because I put it in the embossing folder wrong. But I decided it was still pretty and put it in the inside of this card along with a stitched sentiment piece cut with a die from Lil' Inker. 

Thanks for helping me #spread the joy of creativity!

Ooooo those brushos create some DRAMA, don't they? I love how you used the negative impression for your embossing folder on the inside of the card to mirror what you've got going on on the outside. So clever!
