Showing the texture of the background...
...and the black shadow under the newsprint butterfly...
...and, if you look carefully, the Iridescent Ice embossing over the butterfly.
As I was making this card, my daughter came around. When I explained the Assortment Challenge to her, she said it was just like doing a mystery box challenge on MasterChef and I guess she's right!
The 'pink' is covered in the background, created with a mix of Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry distress inks.
The 'newsprint' is in the Dictionary stamp in the background and the book pages used for the butterfly and the banner.
The 'butterfly' is in the die cut butterfly and its shadow and in the butterflies stamped into the background with Picked Raspberry then diluted with a wet wipe.
The 'lace' is in the bottom layer, stamped with I Love Lace, the black lace ribbon strip at the back and the Textile embossing folder used on part of the pink background.
The 'shiny' is in the Iridescent Ice embossed on the newsprint butterfly and the pink-tinted mother-of-pearl sequins on the butterfly body and the background layer.
This card was a lot of fun to make, so thanks to the challenge blogs for great inspiration!
