For my second card I used another stamp from the same set and stamped it with black Memento ink onto white card. I coloured it with Promarkers, and Sakura sparkle pens for the tree lights. I mounted this one onto gold mirri card before sticking it to the red A6 card, folded portrait style.The sentiment is from Hero Arts stamped with Versamark and embossed with WOW gold embossing powder. I stamped a small sprig of holly in opposite corners with black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I added colour to these with Stickles glitter, and I added some glitter to the main image as well.
So now I am off to link these up at Scraps of Life by Scappymo for the Rudolph Day Challenge.

When I was shopping in our local bits of everything shop recently I spotted a pack of grey board, die cut butterflies, about 25 of them I think, in assorted sizes for 40 pence, a bargain I couldn't resist. I chose these two for my card and embossed them with a Craft Concepts EF called Budding Vine, and the spayed them liberally with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Juneberry Wine. I the rubbed on some silver wax to highlight the high spots. For the back
ground panels I riffled trough the snippets box and found a piece of the pretty butterfly paper and the purple, inky piece which is the result of some long forgotten play session, so I am sorry but I have no idea what products I used, but judging by the colour it could have been the same glimmer spray and it has a bit of silver in it too. I trimmed both these pieces to make the panels and matted them onto silver mirri card. I stuck these to a 5" x 7" white base card and then added the butterflies mounting them on thin foam pads and adding some purple gems to their bodies. The sentiment is a Chocolate Baroque stamp inked with Seedless Preserves DI onto an offcut of the patterned paper and matted onto silver.
I am entering this card at The Butterfly Challenge - Butterfly + E for Embossing. and as the two panels were snippets I am also taking it to Pixies Snippets Playground - Use Snippets.
Thank you for visiting here today and for you comments which are all really appreciated.
I hope to be back soon.
