Prickley Pear Card

Hi everyone, welcome to my Monday post with Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps.  Today I have a card featuring two stamps, the "Clock Face & Wings" and the sentiment from "Clearly Beautiful Hibiscus".  The colors are based on the color challenge #35 over at CR84FN, beautiful combo.  I used my Cricut to cut the 2 fancy label layers and the gray circular shape around the scalloped circle.  The corners and the swirls by the butterfly I cut with Quickutz dies and covered with a product called Ferro metal effect, it's made by Viva and it gives the look of aged metal to whatever surface you apply it, very fun product to work with.
I used the "Scalloped Circle" die from PPRS and cut the shape from green patterned paper and stamped the sentiment on it.  The butterfly image I stamped on purple patterned paper and shaded with distress ink.
Hope you enjoyed my card, thank you for stoping by.
Have a great day.
