Butterflies and Happiness

I simply couldn't let Simon Says Stamp's Butterfly Beauty challenge pass me by this week, I just love crafting with butterflies!
I made this card with a Sheena Douglas stamp set that my Mum gave me.
I stamped the sentiment first and embossed it to make it stand out. The butterflies were stamped and masked while I smooshed a good bit of distress ink around the page. I added the flowers and grasses from the set also in distress ink and sprayed a bit of smooch spritz for the splatter effect. Finally I peeled off the masks and added some colour to the butterflies and some highlights using white gel pen.

I'd like to enter this card in to the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge,, Craft stamper spring flowers and Stamping Sensations challenge - one for the girls.
