Butterfly birthday card

Hi,
This card was inspired by http://www.frenchiestamps.com/2015/04/butterfly-vellum-window.html .
France uses vellum and markers in her video but since I do not have markers I used some shaving cream technique cards and I am well pleased with the result.  I also don't have the punch so used a butterfly from the Silhouette Store and an embossing folder called Woodgrain from Sizzix.  The sentiment was part of a birthday card from Silhouette Store again.  I cut it from the same background and was going to use the letters only but they were too fiddly to take off the mat one by one and the card needed a bit of brightening so used the negative.
Have a Blessed day.

This is stunning! I love the combo of the shaving cream marbling and the woodgrain embossing. Using the negative for the sentiment is a great idea, too!

I haven't done the shaving cream tech in a while - I think it's time to revisit it.
