Another Purple Card!

Greetings to you all, I hope that everyone is well :)
I know my last card was purple, but it's just such a great colour that this one is purple too!  Although there are flowers on this one, today's card is predominantly butterflies!

The mask used is by Imagination Crafts. I used the mask as is and applied a glitter medium to it for the central panel, I then layered this with a black card and silver mirri card.  The same mask (once cleaned in soapy water and dried, of course!) I used again for the background-this time with distress inks in Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord. I ran two lengths of ribbon up the background card before attaching the central panel to it. 
Completely different flowers on this card:

Using the paper flowers from Donna's Kraft Kabin in Rhyl, I layered them up and added a sparkly centre before allowing the butterflies to rest upon them!  The butterflies are monarch I think, Martha Stewart punch-nice and easy to add to any project!  I used two different shades of purple glitter card to punch the butterflies from :)  The butterfly closest to the flowers (bottom left corner of the above photo) is actually sparkle medium used with the glitter card once a butterfly had been punched out!
The sentiment is a Kanban stamp from a set, stamped in versafine onyx black and then layered with a shadow effect onto some black card.  The sentiment was then placed on top of the pink spider webbing (also from Donna's) running across the card.  A dragonfly brad from my stash sits in the top left corner of the sentiment card, and there are punched butterflies on the sentiment, on the spider's web, on the background card-just everywhere!!
I finished this off with 3 lilac gems from my stash and a double purple bow to match the ribbon on the card.

Lots of different things going on but I like to think they work :)
Thanks for stopping by, let me know what you think!
Until next time, Happy Crafting xx
