Summer of Colour #5 - Wild 'N' Reckless Sherbet

Penultimate week of this fantastic Summer of Colour event. Had a good play with this butterfly ATC. I embossed some card with a TH folder, inked with distress, Mowed Lawn, Peacock Feathers and Shaded Lilac. Added some ribbon scraps, some of my new baby button brads, a few flower gems and a bow of coloured string. I heat embossed some detail onto my Quickutz butterfly diecut and backed it all on co-ordinating card. Just love the vibrant colours of this week's ice cream flavour.

I know why you always beat me. Your name is so much easier to write than mine (grin). I can see you are once again playing with an ATC and the lovely butterfly. I like everything about this piece from the dry embossing to the wet embossing to the ribbons and that incredibly teeny tiny bow! Gorgeous art.
