Fusion Card Challenge: Bright Butterfly

Today I have a card to share that I made for the


I was inspired by the photo.
Here's my card:

fusion card challenge bright butterfly Leigh Penner @leigh148 @bazzillbasics #bazzillbasics #cards

I stamped my sentiment (from PTI's Think Big Favourites #5) in 
versamark onyx black and heat embossed it in clear.
Then, I pressed ink (Altenew's Warm Sunshine & Coral Berry &
Wplus 9's Sweet Gelato) onto my acrylic block, spritzed it with water
and pressed my cardstock onto it.
For my butterfly, I diecut the top layer (using PTI's Life is Beautiful dies)
from true black cardstock and the bottom layer from some Bazzill Basics Blue Mylar
Have you tried this yet?
It's so fun!
I love how when you shift the card, the colours change, like this:

I thought it was 2 cards! Didn't realize the change in color was because of the angle. Wow, really cool!
