LOC: Embroidered Butterfly

Just a quick card to share that I made with the new Cling Art Stamps from Layers of Color: Embroidered Butterfly.  I combined this card with three different challenges: the sketch from CPS 189, the Moxie Fab Trigger Tuesday: Momento Mori, and the color challenge from Just Us Girls #55 (Black, Cream and Kraft).  I added a bit of Webster's Pages patterned paper and used the  Belle Brocade Art Stencil along the bottom of the card.  The Embroidered Butterfly was sponged with Memento Desert Sand ink and then painted with Clear Crackle Paint.  After it dried (and crackled, which is oh so cool looking!!) I sponged some darker brown ink to define the cracking.
Here is a closer look at the butterfly:
