In celebration of the special, I decided to use one of my favorite sets offered in this promotion, Flight of the Butterfly. For sketch inspiration, I used I{heart}2stamp sketch challenge. I also used another one of my new "toys." :)

Holy layers Batman! I think this card will require additional postage. It sure was fun though! Can you see the shimmer on the main butterfly? (You can click on the picture to see it better) I stamped the solid image in Pink Pirouette then inked up the inner flower image entirely with Kiwi Kiss and took a Chocolate Chip marker to it's body and various other flowers. I stamped this image, then cut it out and inked it up entirely with (new toy to me!) Versamark Dazzle - Frost. Oooh, can I just say that I love it? It gives such subtle sparkle. Think Lumiere but as a stamp pad! Anyway, I then embossed it with Clear embossing powder to make it a bit more robust. Here's a closeup of the shimmer.

The small flowers on the Chocolate Chip cardstock were also stamped with the Versamark Dazzle. I primarily used Stampin' Up! product, but I did also use some Nestabilities and Dew Drops - Island Blossom. One final picture of the card with toy!

Thanks so much for "flitting" by!
