Butterfly Buckle

One more buckle card-hopefully you aren't tired of them yet! I have a swap due this week, with the subject being vellum. This is what I've come up with, so far. I'm still trying to decide if I like it! I'm running out of time though, so this may be it!

The set is Bold Butterfly, the color is Regal Rose, with Whisper White and Vellum Cardstock. For the Butterfly, I first stamped it with Regal Rose on the Vellum CS, then clear embossed. I stamped it again on Whisper White, and reverse masked and stamped the flowers (off once) inside the butterfly. The background behind the butterfly is done with the Rough Texture wheel, first in Craft White, then in Regal Rose. That was a happy accident! I did it just in white first, but it didn't look quite right. So I went over it again with the Regal Rose. I liked it! The flowers on the white are alternate stamped, some full ink, some stamped off once. The edges on the Whisper White & Regal Rose are edged with the ink pad. The words were also stamped with Craft White, and then again (using the Stamp-a-Ma-Jig® for placement) with Regal Rose. Let me know what you think of the card, ask if you have questions, and thanks for looking!
