A Flight of Butterflies

Today's offering makes use of two of the stamp sets from Sale-A-Bration, Elementary Elegance and Fresh Vintage:

Here is a close up of the bottom right corner as the above photo doesn't show how fantastically shimmery the mica powders are that I have used stamped in the floral design from Fresh Vintage:

I really like that this card is so suitable for different occasions, just by switching out the sentiment, so it could be for birthdays, thanks you cards or could even be sent for condolences if you changed the colours around a little. The recipe is listed below, so why not try making a card similar to this one yourself? I was inspired by a card on Pinterest, but cannot find it again, so if it seems influenced by one of your cards please let me know and I will give appropriate credit!

Stamp Sets: Elementary Elegance, Fresh Vintage
Inks: Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant, Versamark
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant, Rich Razzleberry
Other: First Edition Speciality DSP, Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Sponge Daubers, Oyster Mica Powder (non SU)

Finally I am entering this card into what for me is a massive 5 challenges! - Adult Birthday Cards - Fabulous challenge with really diverse design team makes to inspire. - Animal Projects - A challenge theme totally after my own heart! - Things with wings - A perfect challenge in which to enter my card... I hope they like it! - Take Flight - I think I single handedly keep Sir Stampalot in business with the amount I end up spending there... So it really is high time I entered one of their challenges! - Whiskers or Wings - I love the allsorts challenge, you never know what they will spring on you next!
