Hello & Welcome
A lovely bright card for you today!

The base card is a 7" square and I added a piece of green paper to it as a mat.  The stripes in the paper are glittered

I had previously used several Pixie Powders onto white card stock., left it to dry overnight then cut it to sit behind the butterfly frame die

Next I die cut and embossed the butterfly frame and the inner cutting die onto milk coloured card then added adhesive to the frame and adhered to the pixie powder mat

I then used the inner cutting die again, with the two remaining dies, die cut and embossed them on milk coloured card, added mounting foam to the back of the inner frame and adhered to the card

The accompanying butterfly was also die cut and embossed on white card, glue applied over the top of it and Glitter Jewels sprinkled over it.  I gave it some shape prior to adhering it to the top right of the smaller frame.  I also glued 3 white  pearls to the spine of the butterfly

The mica in the Pixie Powders is gorgeous and I think you really have to see the card in your hand to appreciate how it looks and shines

For the insert I, again, used the rub-ons, I think I could become addicted to these LOL, and used a punch for the corners of the insert
