Make It Monday #40-Reverse Applique

This is really the first card I made for MIM #40, but had to get it mailed. I took the photo to post before running out to mail it.

If you have never tried this fun technique, here is the PTI video by Heather Nichols:

My Card~ Click on the photo for more details. There are two butterflies on the card that I used reversed applique, one on top and another at the bottom (which is hidden by the bow, I just noticed :() the center butterfly is another PTI technique from
MIM #34 - Make Your Own Chipboard Accents.

Cardstock: Base card is Stamper's Select White and prints on the butterflies are pieces of Guide Lines Paper Collection from PTI; Aqua blue is from Recollections and the Lace mat is from The Clever Factory

Ink: Purple from Tsukineko which i embossed with Clear embossing powder
