Saturday Sketch and more shaving cream!

I'm still drawn to using the cardstock I prettied up with the shaving cream technique, so here is another post from me using another piece.  I just LOVED this sketch at Sketch Saturday and naturally all those graded dots guessed it....Butterflies!

Apart from the Garden Green in the background paper making episode, I've only used Night of Navy and Naturals Ivory to make the card.  The butterflies are cut from both colours, spritzed with Champagne Mist shimmer paint and rubbing alcohol to give them a lovely shimmer, then I layered them on top of each other and added a pearl.  

The 'Thanks' stamp comes from a retired set, Illuminations.  I usually emboss these lovely elegant images from the Illuminations set, they just cry out for it......but sadly, my heat gun gave up on me just before I moved house two weeks ago and I've yet to order a new one, however I stamped this twice and cut out the T then added Crystal Effects and a dusting of Dazzling Diamonds and it's so pretty, the picture just shows a hint of it, the T was then popped up on dimensionals.
