Blue Butterfly...

I scanned this a little crooked I'm afraid... and then sent it off to a friend so now I can't re-do.  Sorry!  
However - I do like how this mag butterfly turned out!  Stamped and colored with Copics, cut out and sculpted (dry embossed from the back) and then mounted on foam tape really makes for a simple and comparatively fast card.  All the paper used is scrap/recycled, the pearls are from my endless stash and I drew on the dashed line of the flight path.

I did paint the antennas with clear nail polish to stiffen them a bit for protection.  Other details are always listed below:

This card should be eligible for the following

EMBELLISHMENTS: Pearls from my stash; Micron .01 black pen for flight path; "Candy Turquoise" EP from my endless stash.
