More Gypsy fun

I decided to try my hand at welding shapes to create a shaped card.  I used this butterfly from the Gypsy Wanderings cartridge that comes preloaded on the Gypsy.  I used the cheap Walm,art cardstock for the base of the card, Coredinations Black Magic paper for the top.  I also welded the word Dream from the same cart, then copied and pasted it to layer it.  I used some purple scraps to cover the holes cut into the butterfly, and a scrap of Stampin Up paper for the dream.  I embossed the Black Magic paper with the Cuttlebug Paisley folder and sanded it with a cheapie white nail buffing block.  I used Liquid Glass and Sequins Glitz stickles to enhance the Dream cut and small butterfly.  I added a black pearl from my stash only because I had torn one of the antennae off and I was trying to hide the flaw.  Happy mistakes are always good.
