Challenge Card

Sir Stampalot's May Challenge was Butterflies and Blossoms and I'm really liking how the end result of my challenge card came out. I did a lot of distressing with Tim Holtz Distress Inks to give it the soft blended look.
The sentiment is a Hero Arts Stamp - 'You make me smile'
The butterfly was punched twice from a Martha Stewart punch. The first was adhered directly to the paper, the wire antenna were added and then the top one pop-dotted up to let the wings fly. I put just a tiny bit of multi-colored glitter glue down the body to give it a little shimmer.
I ran the top mat through my Cuttlebug embossing folder Swiss dots after I had applied the Basic Grey flower rub on. It really pressed the rub on into the paper and you'd be hard pressed (no pun intended, lol) to see that it's a rub on now
