Dreamweaver and Stampendous Collaboration

We’re having a Summer Blast collaborating with our friends at Dreamweaver Stencils all week this week! Hope you’re enjoying the inspiration and commenting on all the blogs, because there are some fantastic prize packages up for grabs!
Here's my card today using a pretty Dreamweaver Stencil and a new stamp I think you'll be pretty excited about: 

After I was finished making the background it said butterfly to me, so I grabbed Cling Monica Butterfly (House-Mouse Designs®) and coloured her up!
To make the background:
  1. Tape Petals Background stencil to black cardstock. 
  2. Smear Translucent Embossing Paste over stencil with Paste Spreader
  3. Remove stencil and pour Crystal Micro Glitter over paste. Shake off the excess and allow paste to dry. 
  4. Once paste is dry cut cardstock to size.

 If you are familiar with this image then you will note that there is supposed to be a pumpkin sitting beside her - but because this isn't a Hallowe'en card, I just fussy-cut it out of the picture and now Monica is simply a butterfly! 


Copics used: 
BG09, 23, 32, 11
V22, 25, 28
E30, 31, 33
R0000, 20, 21
