Permanent Butterfly

I don't usually use butterflies on my cards, but this set is so's Hero Arts and Sizzix together...dies and matching stamps. Matching sets like this are trending right now, everywhere!
I used a technique called, Permanent Masking ala Jennifer McGuire. I love her.
By coating the butterfly image with Glossy Accents, it is permanently masked!
I used Distress inks to stamp the Friendship Definition stamp sideways over the butterfly...
another Jennifer trick...makes it unusually interesting.
The other butterflies are stamped in Cocoa ink by CTMH.
I made a tiny white frame to offset the cricut-cut frame, and used papers from
 Graphic 45's French Country.
The "pearls" were made with Liquid Pearls.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Enjoy the journey,
