Left Overs ?

Not having been very inclined to do anything much in the crafting line I was mooching about looking for something to inspire me to get going when I spotted Our Creative Corner Challenge - Love those Leftovers, well my pile of leftovers resembles the Leaning Tower Of Pisa !  if I'm playing with inks I end up with a stack of papers,same thing with the gelli plate papers, can't just stamp something once and I save every little scrap of stuff.  For this card I have used a piece of inky card, think its sprayed with dylusions but also has some gold in it too, stamped over it with Inkylicious stamps -delicate vine and live life. The Butterflies are left overs from my playing with inking and stamping on canvas and their bodies are beads from some fancy braid that was all the rage a few years ago,needless to say I have yards of the stuff. The beads at the bottom of the card are what fell off when I cut the strings of beads off the ribbon top.
