Less is More week 264

ADD SOME TEXTURE is the theme for this week's challenge at Less is More. 

Oooh, exciting, I thought, texture paste sprung to mind - unfortunately it was rock hard (I have had it for years) so that went in the bin.  Next plan, I dug out my embossing folders and decided on this one:

I'm not sure what it's called but it's from Cuttlebug.  I saw the design on Pinterest which involved cutting the die out of the card and then putting it back in the aperture lifting the wings of the butterfly to give dimension.  The leaf sprigs are a Brittania die from Pink Frog Creations.  The butterfly is an Xcut die and the Congratulations was done by hot foiling with a Craft Dragon plate on my TODO.  I used the waste left over hot foiled it onto a piece of card and then cut it to the size I wanted.  Everything was done on the TODO - the embossing, die cutting and hot foiling - truly multi functional.

Thanks for dropping by
