Butterfly Card for Country View Crafts

I am back with my second Bugs, Bees and Butterflies project for Country View Craft challenges. This time I decided to make a simple card using Stampin Up stamps and inks.

It may not be everyone's colour choice but I love greys! The card design is based on a number of versions I have seen on Pinterest - I am not sure who created the original, it may have been Michelle Last. My card base is Basic Grey cardstock and I have stamped with smoky slate and black ink. The stamps sets used are Kinda Eclectic (leaves and butterflies) and Gorgeous Grunge (lines and splatters).

I added a little dimension to the card with the lower butterfly and the sentiment slightly raised. Simple, quick and effective and a great card to have for when I need to send one quickly!

Thanks for looking
