Damask Butterfly

A few weeks ago I made a bunch of vellum butterflies with the Cuttlebug die. Some were embossed, some I left plain. This one, I added a damask stamp to in silver chalk ink. The color combination is very different - Always Artichoke, black, and some pale yellow textured card stock. The sentiment is from Sheetload of Cards last year - they are digital sentiments and I only had them printed on white stock. Ribbon is May Arts silk from my stash, and the silhouette stamp is SU! Just Believe. The damask stamps (on the butterfly and on the yellow layer) are from Prima. I'm entering this card into the Moxie Fab World damask challenge. It's not the most unusual use of damask, but it's getting my creativity flowing and I hope to make some others this week.

We've already had a busy day with Fall Festival at Justin's school. Tomorrow is pumpkin carving and trick-or-treating. Have a Happy Halloween!! Thanks for looking!
