butterfly dreams easel box card

 The background paper I made using the butterfly stamps from the butterfly dreams collection. I stamped the small butterfly in black tuxedo ink and then using my distress inks i used a sponge to distress the paper. distress inks used : walnut stain and wild honey
 I layered this gorgeous large butterfly stamp from magonlia by stamping the image three times, coloured them with my copics and then cut the images out but each time i cut it out i made the wings shorter.
 I coloured the large flower embellishment using the copic air gun
 tissue paper flower coloured with copics
 I thought you could use this card to put in a birthday present or even easter eggs...
This is my first go at making an easel box card and im pretty happy with how it turned out....took me awhile but well worth it in the end.  I hope you all like it I'd love to read your comments ;-)
