Sheer Perfection Meets Bold Butterfly Framelits

From the bottom layer up:  Whisper White card base, striped Mint Macaron mat, Perfect Plum Card Stock that has been embossed with the Fluttering Embossing Folder.

Add a layer of the lovely new color Mint Macaron Card Stock, flag-ended.  Top that with a layer of the Sheer Perfection Vellum, already imprinted with Basic Gray butterflies, also flag-ended.  I colored on the backside of the Vellum with spots of Perfect Plum and Mint Macaron Markers, but not a lot, just for emphasis.  You can barely see that the imprinted butterflies perfectly match the Fluttering Embossing Folder, so I lined it up and ran it through the Big Shot with the Embossing Folder, which makes the butterflies sort of pop off the page.

Add a piece of pale lavender ribbon to the top (mostly to hide the adhesive that holds the Vellum - always visible and wishing it weren't).  Then, add a detailed Bold Butterfly Framelit butterfly, contrasted over the solid card stock base. This can be done with the detailed in either Perfect Plum or Mint Macaron, with the solid card stock base being the other color.  

Thanks for looking,
Carole
