Mod Squad Challenge - Fly Away & NBUS

Hello & Welcome.

 Today I'm joining the current Mod Squad Challenge - Fly Away and will also be entering this on the NBUS #22 blog since I'm using brand new stuff on today's card.


Here is my card:

 For this card I used a brand new stamp set (New Day Butterflies - Hero Arts) that I received for Christmas along with some new designer paper (Park Lane) that I also received for Christmas.

I started with a Basic Black card base then added a large piece of the butterfly dp. Next I used Blushing Bride cs and distressed the edges with Melon Mambo ink (SU) I added another strip of the dp and stamped the butterfly and sentiment with Memento Tuxedo black ink.  The butterfly was colored with colored pencils twice, one was cut out and layered on top of the other one. I used a lacy metal die and a circle die.  I also used a corner rounder punch on the black piece of card stock.

I used Amuse Studio butterfly dies for the smaller two butterflies. One was textured with an embossing folder.  Card Stock colors were: Barely Banana, Pink Passion (which I believe are both retired SU colors).

 This card was based off of another card I did way back in 2012.  You can find that card HERE  

That's it for this card.  As always if you have questions about any card I've posted feel free to e-mail me. - Happy Stamping!
