Love everything ...

Good evening ... I hope all is good with you!  I'm popping by to share a card for the new challenge at "Less is More" where the theme is to use dry embossing ... not a technique that I use very often.  This is the design that popped out of my head:

I embossed a piece of card and then cut it into strips of different lengths and adhered them to the card base.  Using a scrap of a print I created using acrylic paint, stencils and a gel plate I die cut the three butterflies and adhered them to the panel along the body leaving the wings raised to add dimension.  Added a sentiment and that is it!!

I used:
Die'Sire Butterfly die
Simon Says Stamp - Handwritten Borders
Stampin Up - Not Quite Navy ink

I'm entering these challenges:

"Less is More" #365

Addicted to Stamps and More #279
