A 'fruity' butterfly

I have another one-layer card to share for the current One-Layer Simplicity challenge, where the theme is Fruit smoothie.

For my card I lightly stamped the small butterfly (by Gina K) from the Stamp of Approval Beautiful World collection in Antique linen distress ink (using my MISTI) onto a card made out of smooth Bristol and then carefully blended in some Picked raspberry and Squeezed lemonade distress inks using a water brush. I then overstamped the image using Memento Elderberry ink. After that, I added a little more colour to the image. The sentiment is from the same stamp set as the image. I stamped a second sentiment inside the card, which reads: But don't let the world change your smile. Love the sentiments of this stamp set as much as I love the images!

To add a bit of interest, I scored a frame around my image and sentiment using my Scor-Buddy, and of course I could not resist adding a little clear Wink of Stella to my butterfly.
