Butterfly Rings

 Hi!  It's time for another fun challenge from the Tic Tac Toe team where Jeanne came up with this week's board.  Here's the card I made using Gems/Sequins-Embossing-Butterfly for my prompt:

I have been on the lookout for this Tree Rings embossing folder for some time and when I saw it back in stock at a NZ online shop, I grabbed it.  I used it on a white card base after embossing it in Desert Storm cardstock.  On top of that I added a teal pierced frame and a butterfly left over from a previous crafty session.  

For the sentiment, I first stamped in Versamark then in Daydream ink to match the frame and clear-embossed before die-cutting with the matching die.  I finished off the card with some green/teal sequins.

Here's the fun board we have for you to play with this week:

So many fabulous elements! The tree ring is fabulous. I love the contrast of the teal frame. The look of the sentiment and the butterfly are just perfect with all of it.
