House of Cards April Challenge

Hi Everyone,

its challenge time at House of Cards! This month theme is going to be add a butterfly and/or color challenge.



I added two butterflies here - from STAMPlorations - Artful Flutters. Colored them with alcohol inks. The background I made with a stencil by iStencil - just put it down straight and sponged it with distress inks. The sentiment is by Papertrey.
