Butterflies and vellum

Its the first time I've used this stamp and I got very frustrated as I couldn't get it to stamp perfectly,finally realised the stamp is faulty and has a couple of lines on the edges of the butterflies missing! filled the missing bits in with an embossing pen on the embossed layer. Coloured with perfect pearls for a nice sheen on the butterflies.  The piece down the lefthand side is stamped and embossed on vellum as is the small butterfly in the bottom corner. Found a few challenges to put in on

  1. Hello Joan
    How annoying to have a faulty stamp, whatever you did to fix it has worked as one would never know, and your card has a wonderful softness, I like the design very much.

  2. Gorgeous Joan, the muted colours blend well together and the butterflies look fabulous.
    Thanks for linking this to the Stamp Man Vellum challenge.
    Have a great week.
