USC - Things With Wings ...

.... Hi, good morning.  I'm here with a reminder that there's still plenty of time to play along with the  current Uniko Studio Challenge which has the theme of
This card is really clean and simple and features lots of pretty butterflies:

Stamps: Uniko Studio - Bright Butterflies, Simply Said Birthday
Inks: Kaleidacolour - Blue Breeze
Dies: Uniko Studio - Bright Butterflies
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Stickles - Crystal; Wink of Stella - Clear; Stampin' Up! Card - Tempting Turquoise

The idea for this card came from a few challenges:
I die cut several butterflies from white card.  I glued some of the die cuts together to make them thicker.  I kept one of the die cut butterflies as a single layer and stamped the image with ombre ink.  I added sparkle to the white butterflies with a clear Winko of Stella brush and adhered them to the card.  I stamped the sentiment and little flowers with ombre blue inks.  I added a touch of sparkle to the stamped butterfly and flowers with some crystal Stickles.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of turquoise card and decorated the white panel with a sentiment, more butterflies and some flowers.

Here's a close up of the sparkle on the plain white die cut butterflies - when the sun shines, they really shimmer.
