Serenity Butterfly card

Hello Crafters!

I started to tidy my craft room and put away stamps I recently used.  The Quietfire butterfly stamp which had been on my desk for a couple of weeks was about to be put away when I decided to make just one more card using it.  :)
Distress Marker in Shaded Lilac was applied directly to the butterfly stamp.  It was stamped on watercolor paper.  After it dried I outlined it in Black Soot Distress Marker.  Quietfire's Serenity was stamped using Ranger's Jet Black Adirondack Ink.  It was die cut using Spellbinders' Labels 40.  Next, Shaded Lilac Distress Cardstock was die cut using Spellbinders Labels 40 Decorative Accents.  The die cuts were mounted on patterned paper from Basic Grey's Little Black Dress.  Finally, it was all mounted on a Shaded Lilac tent fold card base.  I kept the inside simple with watercolor paper cut to size.  
Love the soft colors- it makes me want to use Shaded Lilac more often.  A nondescript card...this will be a good anytime card to send to someone sweet.  :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!
