Indigo Blu Butterflies

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well.  It has been a really hot day again here today.  I just wish it would get a bit cooler at night for sleeping.  But we can't have it all lol.

Today I am sharing a card to enter into the challenge at Lisa B Designs.  The challenge is to use Indigo Blu or Jane Gill Stylised Flowers.  I decided to use Indigo Blu stamps and I have actually taken my inspiration for this card from a tutorial that Lisa did on the Lisa B Designs blog.  You can find Lisa's tutorial and card here.  


I used a stencil from Imagination Crafts for the background.  I stamped the Indigo Blu butterflies onto some card and used distress ink to colour them.  I also added some glitter to the butterflies for a bit of sparkle.  

My card is no match for Lisa's but I am quite pleased with the result and it was great to try something a bit different.  Would love to know what you all think.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
