Butterfly card with a butterfly award :)

We'll talk about the  butterfly award later in the post, let me get down to sharing the butterfly card first.

Today's card is all about using the scraps (I am a miser when it comes to paper and save even the tiniest bits of paper :) ). I am not particularly proud of it and thought I share it anyways. (sorry for the bad pics, it raining here for the past 4 days and the weather is all gloomy and dark, not ideal for taking pictures)

 Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps: smART Works(butterfly), Skipping Stones Designs(Grunge);ink: Momento(Lady Bug), Distress Inks(Shabby Shutters, Broken China);embellishments: Pie Lane(Glitter balls, Self Adhesive crystals)

The outer fame is a negative from THIS card set and the circle was a scrap from THIS one. The butterfly is clear embossed and colored with distress inks. Did you notice the dimension on my pretty butterfly? Its ready to take flight :D
I started this card to show you the wood grain background technique but then I couldn't figure out a place for the camera to shoot the video from upside down and a photo tutorial won't work for well to show you this technique. So, you need to wait for the tutorial till i figure it all out :) This is my entry for the Lilypad Cards Challenge - Resist Technique.

Onto the butterfly award, not one but 3 people passed the same award to me today :) - Karuna, Khusboo and Tejal - A big THANKS to all of you!
