Parchment butterfly card

I have accidentally deleted yesterdays post so here it is again!!

Parchment is something I have always fancied having a go at. I saw the Groovi system and decided to give it a go. This is an 8x8in white card that I have matt and layered with blue card and white embossed card. I have embossed the white card with an Embossalicious folder. I have printed a sentiment and die cut it with a Crafts Too die and cut the next size in the nesting set in blue to mount the sentiment. I have used Groovi plates to do the circles in parchment, the leaf flourishes and butterfly. I have used Pergamano tools to do the edge and piercing. I have used a Pergamano 2 needle tool, semi circle, one needle tool, scissors and glue. I have coloured the leaves and butterfly with Spectrum Noir pencils. I have die cut the scalloped circle with a Xcut die. I completed my card with Tonic Nuvo drops.
