Butterfly Swirl

Good evening one and all! Wow! This is my second post for the day - I guess that my mojo has found its way back to me. This little card is for two different challenges. I haven't entered any in awhile, and have missed the inspiration that they provide. For this card, I used Heather Scott's sweet little sketch #141 from last week. I selected my colors from the iCopic Color Challenge #20 that I found on Samantha's blog. Both Heather and Sami are very near and dear to me. I admire both for their amazing energy and desire to share their passion for stamping and scrapping.
This card uses Maggie paper and CS from TAC, as well as TAC stamps from Butterfly Swirls and You Are Awesome. I cut the shape behind the butterfly with Nesties Labels One. I colored the butterfly with BG01, BG05, V12, and V15. I also did the butterfly twice and layered some of the wings with a pop-dot (not sure if you can see that). I embossed the card base with a Sizzix embossing folder. Ink is Memento Hint of Pesto and Memento Tuxedo Black.
Once again, thank you for checking out my blog. I hope that you find a brief respite from your day. I wish you joy and peace in this crazy world.
