I wanted to try a die-cutting technique Amber demonstrated the other day on her blog - it worked really well although my cutting away with the craft knife wasn't up to my standards - I think my blade wasn't sharp enough.  So I covered it up with vellum - there's usually a way to fix a mistake. 
Then I continued the vellum in the leaves and layered butterfly.  It's not very visible but I used a bit of Wink of Stella on the smallest butterfly.  I am entering this in the Card Concept challenge - use a butterfly theme and the style (I think) is "clean and layering".  This is another card for my file as a variety of different sentiments could be used inside when the need arises.

Paper: HA grey layering paper; PTI sweet blush and vellum
Dies: SU Beautiful Wings; PTI quatrefoil; Sizzix leaves
Stamp: Technique Tuesday
Other: Wink of Stella; Ranger liquid platinum embossing powder

Thanks for looking and your kind comments.  Betty
