Be Inspired Challenge - Vintage Butterfly

WOW, look at these gorgeous lanterns, do they inspire you? They did me and these lanterns are the inspiration this week for Beate's 'Be Inspired Challenge'.


This is what I came up with for the Challenge. I love this Stipple Butterfly (retired) and I love coloring it in.



If you click on the lantern images you will see that it has butterflies & leaves swirled around. I knew I wanted to incorprate both in my card. I embossed the butterfly on Whisper White cs with detail black embossing powder and colored the image in with Radiant Pearls (remember those?). I really need to start using them again, they are so easy and fun to work with. I also embossed the 'Leaves a' la Carte' in Gold on Chocolate Chip cs, I thought that gave me the bronze look I was going for.
Thanks for stopping by today!
