Blue Orchids and Embellished Butterfly with some Stenciling

 Hello and welcome! It's time for my weekly Allsorts challenge card share, this week we have Lorraine (Lolo)  hosting and she picked the theme of "Embellish It". There are two prizes this week, one will be a £10 gift voucher to Crafty Ribbons and then we have a second prize of a Sizzix die for a second winner. Hope you'll play along with us!

And here is my card:

I went with a CAS- ish style here but with a little bit of stenciling and inked edges.

The pretty orchid stamp is from the Penny Black set Happy Together. Stamped once on this card front, then again on a scrap piece of white card stock so I could fussy cut the larger blossoms and leaves to adhere to the card over the script stamping. I colored with Copic markers

On the background I used part of Stampin Up's French Script stamp with Antique Linen ink. Then adhered the butterfly which I embellished with some sticky rhinestones. This butterfly is part of Penny Black's Flowing Butterfly die, I only wanted to use one of the butterflies so I trimmed it off after die cutting. It's been cut out white card stock but I inked it with Blueprint Sketch ink.

Stickles glitter was placed in the flower centers for some more sparkle. Then I used the tile stencil from this Stampers Anonymous set, also with Blueprint Sketch ink. Before adhering the card front to the base, I used one of Avery Elle's Wonky Stitches dies. 

The sentiment is from the PB set Happy Wishes

Thanks so much for visiting!
