Flutterby Wishes

I had itchy fingers to get crafting with these lovely new Prima Sunrise Sunset papers, they're divine!
I decided that a butterfly incorporating the colours of the papers would be nice so I used my  Papermania Build a Butterfly stamp set to make a dimensional butterfly.  I first stamped a whole butterfly as a base then a top section and a bottom section, which once cut out layer up to make a whole insect with the top wings over the bottom ones as in nature.  The colouring was done with my usual Promarkers and once coloured I gave it a spritz with some iridescent Spray and Sparkle.   The sentiment was done with a stamp from the same set.
To finish off I added some ribbon, a bow, some gems and a butterfly trail of Liquid Pearls.
