Bits Box Butterfly!

Hi everyone, the theme at Less is More is to use something from your leftover bits stash!

I had this butterfly diecut from a play with dylusions sprays a couple of years ago!
I embossed it with the matching folder, brushed the peaks and edges with some black ink, added some bling and it was finished.
 The scroll is stamped with versafine imperial purple ink and clear embossed, and the sentiment stamped in versafine black and clear embossed too. It says don't just fly. Soar. (Hubby had trouble reading it).

I'm also linking up to the butterflies challenge at Double D Challenges, where they have this gorgeous mood board for inspiration. I was taken with the lower left one!

At Just Us Girls the theme is anything goes.

At Simon Says Stamp Wednesday it's also anything goes.

Word Art Wednesday also has an anything goes theme,
 as long as you use a sentiment or bible verse.

Sizzix butterfly duo die and embossing folder; antenae from a Memory Box butterfly die; Dylusions inks, probably fuschia, grape and midnight as these are the only purples and blues I have! black soot distress ink; Katzelkraft flourish border stamp; Stamplorations Noteworthy 2 setiment; versafine inks, clear ep.

Thanks for visiting,

Love that butterfly and the flourish down the side. Better get Hubby to go to Specsavers. Easy for me to read as I have a few stamps like that lol.
