So I never got back to the SCS VSN until almost midnight. That's when I saw the second to last challenge by Pam "Its all about butterflies". I had just resurrected this great sentiment stamp that I had wanted to create a card around and I had been given some lovely butterfly images in a swap I was part of this summer (mind you we have a 45 min limit of creating the card as part of the VSN challenge so anything I did not have to stamp myself or dig out of my pile of stamps were going to be a plus). We were suppose to incorporate flowers into the card too which I noticed after the card was almost done; however the good news was there were flowers in the little frame around the sentiment. The sentiment says "Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly" - Anonymous.
The butterfly DP is from two different paper blocks which I think are both DCWV but not 100% on that. They both have a little sparkle - the circling butterflies all sparkle and the other butterflies has sweeps of sparkle through out the paper. I colored the butterfly image with copics and then used Elmer's 3D glue with sparkles in it on the butterfly wings - pink on the edges and clear on the main body. The sparkles are light and not sure how well they will show up in the photo - I tried to pick the one that showed the sparkles on all of the card the best (click on the photo to enlarge and you will see some of the sparkle). I popped the butterfly up with an extra thick dimensional. Sentiment is from Outlines Rubber Stamp Co. using Tim Holtz's distress ink - tea dyed.
