Waayy behind on posting and tags still but...

here is the card I was making for the Graphicus challenge to use plum and gold, or was it on Elusive Images blog? Well I was much too late to enter, and this isn't the best photo but maybe I will take a better one or edit it better when the new PC arrives.

The Graphicus butterfly is stamped and embossed in gold then coloured (carefully) with metallic Prismacolor pencils, and a touch of glitter. The greeting is embossing paste with a Dreamweaver stencil, the inside of the card is lined with gold paper and white card with plum swirls on it, the edge of the card is punched with a Martha Steward border punch. The butterfly is layered on another stamped butterfly, and mounted on a rectangle cut with Nestabilities, and matted on a scalloped rectangle again Nestabilities.

I know I still have a tag to do, and there are snow photos which you will probably all be sick of by now.
