Stained Glass Like Butterfly

Hello Everyone!

Back today with a pretty butterfly card.  I used the piecing method that I used on the Large flower and vase card.  This time I used peach papers on a green card base.

This butterfly was kind of a process. First, I  stamped the butterfly Stampin Up) with a rust colored ink.  I did not like the way that looked.  So, I stamped over that with black ink.  That looked so-so.  Then I colored the butterfly with markers. Hmmmm.. Still not quite what I wanted.  Then I went over the butterfly with Glossy Accents (by Ranger).  And I said, "Hey, that looks like stained glass".  So, that is how this card came about.
I added some ribbon, lace, and buttons for embellishments.  On the inside, I stamped a nice sentiment from Technique Junkies.  Also added some of the lace on the inside.

I am entering this card in:
