Autumn is Here

The leaves are starting to turn to those lovely Autumnal colours and whilst I love the colours of this season, it also heralds the coming of winter which I don't look forward to.  However, it's a good reason to use all those lovely bronze and red shades of Distress Ink and embossing enamels.
 
For this card I started by die cutting a large butterfly using the Cricut and Indie Art cartridge.  Using  the outside of the die cut as a mask, I sprayed Gingerbread Glimmer Mist over the top to create the butterfly image for the background.  Mustard Seed and Fired Brick DI was used to ink around the masked butterfly and the edges of the card.
 

 
 
The centre butterfly is stamped using Crafty Individuals' CI-061 in DI Rusty Hinge and Fired Brick, then edged very lightly with Aged Scarlet Frantage embossing enamel.  The sentiment is also from Crafty Individuals and stamped in Fired Brick and edged the same.
 
 
I'm entering this into two challenges this month:
 
Crafty Individuals - In Autumnal Colours
Fashionable Stamping Challenges - Make a Card
