Penny Black Saturday Challenge {Midway Reminder}

Hi everyone, it's time for our midway reminder post for the current PBSC!

Our challenge is


I have two cards to share with you using the Penny Black Butterfly Trio stamp set. 

Card #1
I was inspired by this card HERE
I embossed the largest butterfly on white cardstock then used distress ink to create the background. I fussy cut around the base of the butterfly and popped it up with foam tape.
The base is coloured card that I embossed my sentiment on then added sequins and clear drops for interest. 

Card #2
I stamped the same butterfly stamp, coloured it with glitter pens, then fussy cut it out. I popped it up over an aperture.

Here are both cards together -
