Happy Tuesday, everyone!  It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC109)!  Silke is our challenge host.  Silke is challenging us to use butterflies on our cards.  Easy peasy and fun to boot!  I am using the colors from SCS CC314 Challenge!  Baja Breeze, Soft Suede, and Crumb Cake!   

I chose to go vintage collage shabby chic with my card today. I  created a faux cameo postage stamp. The butterfly covers it up in this photo a bit, so I have a close up picture to the right.  My big bow covers up the Post Card written across the top of the bundled postcards look.  For my card I combined several Flourishes sets to get the stack of post card design and background detailing.  I am using Flourishes From the Desk Of, Antique Map, Kids Play, Vintage Postcard, and Falling Leaves(sentiment) stamp sets.
For the challenge, I stamped the Antique Map and En Francaise onto cardstock and punched.  I added glue and glitter.  I love how the image detail comes through the glittered butterfly.

For the faux cameo postage stamp look, I took the little girl image from Kids Play set and masked off the head area.  I stamped using vintage cream ink directly to cardstock and let dry. I cut out using the smallest oval from my Spellbinder's beaded oval nestabilities.  I usually bypass some of the smaller pieces so it was fun to see what shape they made.  I added glossy accents and let dry. I also used the smallest rectangle from my petite rectangle nestabilities to give me the look of a postage stamp.  I think the look is very close since the scallops are so close together.  Love the finished look.   



Make sure you check out the other blog team designers to see what they created with butterflies!
