Alphabet Challenge - E for Ebony

Good Morning everyone

Time for the Alphabet challenge again, i had the choice to pick for the letter 'E' so went with 

Use a Majority of black

I had great fun with this one.

6x6 Black base card.   I used an old core'dinations cardstock pack called gemstones for all the coloured card here they have a lovely shimmery finish which pops against the black - photo really doesn't do it justice!.  

I cut a square slightly smaller than the card front and die cut the leaf die from it 3 times, i then added 3d foam on the back and mounted onto a panel of lime green card and added to the card front.  I stamped the greeting onto yellow card and die cut into a fishtail banner.  I die cut the butterfly from 3 colours of card and added onto a white circle.  I added a white pen doodled border to finish. 

A close up showing the layers of the butterfly. 

Items Used:
Core'dinations gemstones cardstock
Memory box 'cottage leaf' die
Spellbinders butterfly die
Dienamics fishtail banner die
Justrite sentiment stamps
