Bright Swallowtail

My card today is for two challenges

The sketch is from Pals Paper Arts,

and The Play Date Cafe have these
colours from the photo inspiration

HOT PINK  AND  LIGHTNING YELLOW,                   
This is my card


The Swallowtail butterfly was heat embossed with Pearl powder on white card and then sponged over with the three colours. Some yellow card was embossed and layered on some grey card, and a strip of grey had the edge cut with decorative scissors and wrapped with pink ribbon and bow.

Supplies :
Card = Yo Yo Yellow, Pink Passion, Naturals White, Grey and White base FMS
Stamps = Swallowtail and Verve
Inks = Yo Yo Yellow, Pink Passion, Sahara Sand, Versamark and Black
Tools = Big Shot, Nestabilities, Constellations EF, and Fiskars Scissors
Extras = Pearl EP, and Ribbon 

Thanks for dropping by
