Monarch Butterfly- Butterfly Bijou Card 3 of 4

I was so incredibly lucky to get a hold of the Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper as a part of a creative challenge. Here is the third card I submitted. Did you miss the 1st? Find it HERE as a part of the We Bee Stamping Blog Hop. Want to see the second card click HERE.

We have more Monarchs stop at our butterfly bush in the summer than any other butterfly. It reminds me of when I was a child and my parents took me to San Juan Capistrano to see the great Monarch Migration. If you ever get the opportunity to experience it please do, it is truely magical.

On to the card! First let me appologize the photo was really hard to get to show the unique paper available as a part of the Butterfly Bouquet promotion. I am referring to the Natural Touch Speciality Paper but the Monarch paper is also apart of the promotion. See below for more details.

Bermuda Bay is the base color, followed by right/left boarder of Basic Black and the center of Butterfly Bijou designer series paper. I used the Tasteful Labels dies to cut layers of Bermuda Bay cardstock, Basic Black and Natural Touch Speciality Paper.

I was able to stamp the textured, non-porous Natural Touch Speciality Paper using Staz-on Ink and the Positive Thoughts stamp set. See how the paper shines? Remember that how I said it was hard to get a good photo? That is because it is coated so normal ink will NOT absorb and the camera flash makes the sentiment hard to see from the reflection. Aside from being camera shy this paper is BEAUTIFUL. It has a light woodgrain pattern printed into it AND on to it. I have no idea how they have one side embossed but not the other!

The accent Monarch comes from this set too. Coat it with Wink of Stella and the whole card sparkles.
