This is a very easy card to make but it does take a little time. To create the "Faux Diamond Dust" background: Brayer Garden Green Classic ink on Glossy Paper. Completely coat the paper using a Versamark Pad. Emboss surface using Holigram Highlights. You can also use Iridescent Ice EP instead of Holigram Highlights. The vellum butterfly is colored on the back side using markers for a "Stained Glass" effect Pinch the wings together and and it will appear that the butterfly is soaring off the card.

Just gorgeous, Susan! I feel so privileged to have had the chance to learn the Faux Diamond Dust technique from you in person at our MN Gathering! Thanks for everything you share . . . in person and on the web. BTW - this card is AWESOME! I feel so lucky to have a similar one here at home in my basket!
