Butterfly Blessings


 
One of the things I love about papercrafting is being able to choose colour combos, and I had a real urge to do green and black!  Here's a card for today's Featured Stamper Challenge at Splitcoaststampers - it's Lin, aka bearpaw, and HERE is the card I used for inspiration.
I cut a rectangle with Spellbinders Nestabilities and then inside it cut a square from Spellbinders Nestabilities Squares. 
The rectangle is popped up and so is the text square with the black layer receding behind, you might be able to see it in this closer look. 
 

Who knows if green butterflies exist in reality but this one's coloured with copics to match the vivid green dp (DCWV Lemonflower Matt Stack).
