Brilliant Wings for AYSI 275

 If you play regularly at As You See It, you'll have noticed that we have six types of challenge that rotate throughout the year. It's one of the things that drew me to this challenge site: a variety of challenges, including ones I hadn't seen in other places. We rotate a sketch, a colour combo, a theme, a fill-in-the-blank, a recipe and a speed stamping challenge. 

This week, it's Recipe Challenge time. This is one of the challenges I hadn't seen anywhere else. In my head, it's a bit like that old cooking show, Chopped. You get five ingredients that you must use but in any way you like. Interesting, yes?

There's not much stamping in this card, but your Stampin' Cut and Emboss Machine will get a real workout!

Die Cuts or punches: Stitched Rectangle Dies, Forever Flourishing Dies, Brilliant Wings Dies
Embossing Folder: Painted Texture 3D and Bricks and Mortar 3D
Something starting with 'B': Butterflies and Bricks
Subtle Colours: Petal Pink, Soft Sea Foam from the Subtle Colour Family, and Sahara Sand
Something Shiny: Gold Foil, Champagne Rhinestones, Gilded Leaf

You can see here the lovely effect that the gilded leafing adds to the butterflies.

If you'd like to know how I made this card, you can watch the video tutorial here.
