Brushos butterfly & border

Hi again, a friend asked me to make a couple of thank you cards and left the design up to me, so, of course it has butterflies in it!

I sprinkled orange and prussian blue brushos onto some watercolor paper and smooshed it around to create this 2 tone effect. I spritzed it with blue patina perfect pearls too, though it's hard to see the shimmer in the pic.

I scored a couple of lines either side of the border die for more definition.

I'm linking up to the things with wings challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday.
