Several Fun Techniques

Every once in awhile a card comes together nicely . All the colors work together, the layout is proportioned right, the techniques turned out.  I am happy to report that I am happy with this card.  👧
It actually turned out better than I hoped for !

After embossing the white card stock, I sponged a little bit of Sahara Sand ink on the raised images.  Also sponged some on the edges of the sentiment oval.  The vertical strip is rubbed with Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink. The lovely ecru lace is from my mom's stash of lace.  I cut out the butterfly from Stampin'Up! Sahara Sand cardstock with a Birch Press die then rubbed a bit of distress ink in the center of the butterfly.  Card base is same cardstock.
