This card made a nice change from doiung christmas cards and there was no set occassion on any of the themes either so a nice open card. The layout I took from Magical crafts fortnightly challenge.
The colours are quite vivid but you can blame that on the theme over at Ildi Co'c creative challenge as they have a theme of black and bright and I love bright blold colours from this end of the spectrum. I used black card and stamped with versamark and embossed with white powder and then used some vivid papers not sure whose. The flowers I coloured with my promarkers. The butterfly I stamped 3 times twice into film and once on white card so this can also be entered into ( can't find the note I made will enter the challenge when I do) as they want you to use the same image stamped 3 times on your card.
Finally the theme for my card I chose a butterfly as over at By the cute and Girly they have a theme of at the movies, to make a card inspired by a movie title. I thought I could be obvious and use a magnolia stamp but after looking thriugh our DVD collection decided to go with The Butterfly Effect.
I've taken a close up of the butterfly to show the 3 layers but unfortunately the top layer is directly side on and just a thin sliver but there are 3 there honest.
