Monarch butterfly

Hey all, I am up with a card, this was made 2 days back. I was subbing yesterday, and didn't have any  time to blog.
The weather is warming up here a bit, but making people sick. Many teachers and students are sick, I  am getting calls for subbing everyday nowadays.

Ok my card was made after I saw the CNN feed on my FB, about the Monarch butterflies. I thought of coloring one. I had used Uniko stamps both for the butterfly and the sentiment here.

I started with stamping and coloring the butterfly, I had used yellow, 2 shades of orange, rd and a red and orange gel pen to add color. Then fuzzy cut it to add to the card.
I grabbed the card base which was sitting on my desk - a textured black base. I used NBUS - stencil, I bought a couple of stencils when I was in India, last summer, and I haven't used all, still have at least 3 new, and a couple of stamps as well.

I used Lawn Fawn white pigment ink, and sponged the stencil, and then used a red and gree pigment ink from Versamark to get the color.
Added the butterfly and the sentiment on a red scrap. I added pearls to the flower centers. Done - pretty simple card, almost one layer but to the butterfly and sentiment.
