I decided to create a background by inking up the craft mat with the lovely plum color and spritzing it with water until it was liquid and dragging my cardstock through it.
I died seam binding to match by the same method as the background. I used the same ink on the craft mat with water and dragged tissue paper into the ink. I let this dry and then stamped script over the surface with gray ink. After this was dry I die cut two butterflies from the tissue paper. I wanted a glossy finish on my butterflies and I inked them up with versamark watermark ink and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder.
I accented the butterfly with two stickpins and a charming gem.
To finish off the card I added a banner with the sentiment on the top and mounted the image onto a white cardbase.
