SQSC4: Back to Back Elegance

I am thrilled to announce that I am now a Designer for the Stampin' Queens Sketch Challenge!
The challenge is every Wednesday and the sketches are divine. I hope you will stop by here each week, then scoot on over to the Challenge Blog to see how the other designers interpreted the sketch. I am amazed by the creativity of the artists in this group. Make sure to play along, too!

This is the sketch we were working from this week:

As you can see, I changed my elements a little bit -- my layers are in a different order and the embellishment on the top layer (a butterfly in the sketch above) was moved to the upper left. Still, it is in the same spirit!

The background of my card uses the Back-To-Back Technique from the August 2011 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter, and the butterflies use the Cuttlebug Highlights Technique. All stamps and materials from Stampin' Up!:
Stamps: Established Elegance,French Filigree and Wonderfully Worn
Paper: Blushing Bride, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White
Ink: Blushing Bride, Riding Hood Red, Sahara Sand, Craft White
Other: Scallop Punch, Beautiful Wings Embosslits die, Square Lattice embossing folder, Sahara Sand Marker.

Okay, now it is your turn! Go to the Stampin' Queens Challenge Blog and add YOUR creation!
