Mod Squad Butterfly Focal

A quick card to get in at the last minute on the Mod Squad Challenge this week.  We are to make a project with a butterfly as the focal point. I have had this SU stamp called Swallowtail, for quite awhile and have only used it a few times and almost forgot about it.  It is the perfect stamp for this challenge. 
On Navy CS from GKD, I layered light blue SU cardstock and then a layer of White GKD layering weight CS. 
The Butterfly is stamped in versa mark and then white embossing powder was used.  In this case the powder is so old, that it looks rather cream color.  I will need to remember that when I use it again.
Next I sponged the entire image with Faded Jeans Distressed ink and stamped the vines with Navy ink from GKD and her stamp set called Summer Blooms.  The sentiment is from Power Poppy Daffodils.

Thanks for stopping in, I have not made a card in a few days
and I think I was going through withdrawal!  Glad that is over.
Thanks for leaving the little bits of love, they are appreciated.
