Butterfly card

Good afternoon friends, how are you all today?
 Doing ok I hope! I have been getting very inky
making my usual 'Less is More' card. 
My card was showcased  last week too, 
thank you so much !!!
The theme this week is......
Faux Bleach
Hmm that got me thinking alright! I
made a few attempts which turned out
rubbish. So I ditched the alcohol inks
and shiny photo paper idea and used
 Distress inks instead.
Thank you Anita for the idea, soooo
 much easier!!!....and relax ;) I made a
distress background with random colours.
Then stamped my butterfly and blotted
 some of  the colour off it.
I edged my topper with a gold pen and 
sprayed a bit of gold ink on one corner.
I used my spanky new die and gold card
for the sentiment.
I stamped the top sentiment and gave it the
 same inky spray and job done! I dedicate
 this card to all my amazing crafty friends as
whenever I see your creations I think you
 are all just AMAZING!!!
Phew, hard going this week,and lots of 
inky messiness but got there in the end. 
Have a go everyone, it is easy once
 you try ;) Have a good week friends!
ps. Wasn't feeling that great yesterday,
virus I think,... still recovering.
So late with my sorry.
I will visit you all now I promise!
