Butterfly Essence
Hello Beautiful by An'Jenic G.
For this card I embossed a white peic of card stock and inked it up in Tim Holtz: Spun Sugar. I used some fun Enamel Dots by My Minds Eye. I stamped the cute butterfly and ink it with the same TH ink.  
Circle of Butterflies by An'Jenic G.
For this card I wanted  I stamped  each butterfly in a 2" punch and colored them with my Sharpies. I used two different colors in the sharpies to get this two tone look. I also used my star dust pen but its not showing up to good. I used a Chevron embossing folder and a strip of black card stock to help my butterflies stand out.

Stunning cards. I like the way you have used the embossing especially on the first card it really lifts the butterfly and makes it look like it is floating. I love the green spotlight butterfly - delicious colouring.
