Distressed Flutterbies

Good morning folks,
I hope you are enjoying your weekend despite the dreadful weather. Just a little reminder today that there is only a week left to get your entries into the 'Cloud' challenge over at Totally Tilda so get a crafty wriggle on.
I have another cloud card to share with you today using the beautiful Tilda with Hawaain Flower. This is my first finished project using the fabulous Distress Markers and I have to say I am absolutely loving them.

The gorgeous DP's are from the Plumeria collection by Basic Grey. The fabulous cloud die is from Memory Box and the sentiment is by Hero Arts. The butterfly border is from Sizzix by Tim Holtz and I have layered it with glittered acetate. Everything has been faux stitched and then distressed with Pumice Stone DI.
