This was a REALLY tough card to photograph. The butterfly is stamped with "Old Paper" Distress ink by Ranger and then chalked for the colouring. (Yes, I know that chalk is considered so 'yesterday' but I still love the soft effects one gets with it :0)

Hero Arts has recently released a series of stamps, which includes some old botanical 'etchings'. They're so beautiful. I decided to try and keep the feeling of an etching intact for this and play with the simplified butterfly for some relief from the monochromatic colour scheme.
I also had to try some ruffled ribbon. Been admiring that so much lately! (Check out Heather's blog - she's really great with this technique - yummo!)
Thanks for stopping in! Are you playing the Papertrey Blog Hop on Sunday?
Have a fantabulous evening!
