Ombre Butterflies

Good morning - I actually made this card yesterday before I went to school, but I never got around to posting it through the day.

I've created it for the SUO Challenge which was a NO layer card.  I'm actually getting a bit more comfortable with these.  I picked a spectrum of blues for an ombre effect with the butterflies - the top one is popped up with a rhinestone. Rhinestones are scattered around - not something I'm used to doing (scattering!) but I like how it turned out.  I used my markers to colour the sentiment in a opposite ombre to the butterflies…..didn't realize it was opposite until I stamped it though.

Off to school now - still lots of prep for Teacher's convention, but I hope to get some stamping done this afternoon.  
Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by.
Joan
