Wrong Way Butterfly

Today's sketch challenge gave me my start to this card....but....when I was flipping this upside down, I accidentally cut the square out on the wrong side! Oops!

I was also inspired by some recent work of Faith (Markie's Mom) to do a silhouette in pinks/reds. I think I've done the background in these colors before but never the actual silhouettes. And don't forget to give those silhouettes The Silhouette Treatment. The background airbrushed. The butterflies were run thru the Swiss Dots embossing folder and then I added some sparkle but drawing in a few lines with my glitter pen and smearing them with my finger.

Stamps: Essence of Love
Paper: GP 110, Bazzill
Ink: Rose Red
Accessories: Copics & Airbrush System, Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch, Glitter Pen, Nesties, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder
