Vellum Butterflies

Hello friends!
This is my 2nd post today.
I felt the NEED to share Penny Black creations since there is a sale (see here.)  going on over Simon Says Stamp. As summer is coming to an end, I couldn't help making another butterfly card. Creating something with nature theme is always soothing to me.

I had combined my most favorite stamp sets (Script, Verdure and Butterfly Trio) from Penny Blacks summer release and turned it into a little card.

(Sadly, Script and Butterfly Trio are out of stock now)
 You really can't go wrong with vellum butterflies, right?
I recently got some new alcohol inks and had fun using them on the butterflies.

 I am not really into the color purple. However, I was inspired by the colors from an old magazine ad. It feels great to try something different. The color palette is on the "cooler" tone and is perfect for the end of summer.

Today's the last chance to take advantage of the Penny Black 15% Off Sale.

You can get some ideas from my previous post here.
I am listing all my previous projects (#1-13) for your easy viewing and shopping.
As for #14-20, they are on their way to my house

Your card is lovely. Almost poignant as it does reflect the end of summer. Your colors are extraordinary and the butterfly simply beautiful. So lovely.
