Swallowtail Beauty with PCCS92 & CTD291

Good evening and thanks for stopping by.  I wanted to share with you a card I was working on today.  Its my take on the fun challenges for The Paper Craft Crew (sketch) and Color Throwdown (colors).  Both of which I loved and so happy with how the two worked together.   
I won't go into a lot of details with this project, cause you can see for yourself all that I did.  I will only highlight on a few.  I embossed together with the mosaic folder the white and silver paper.  To stamp the swallowtail, I used mixed colors of Bermuda bay, night of navy and pear pizzazz (sub color for lucky limeade).  I then stamped again with versa mark on top and sprinkled on dazzling diamonds.  The little flowers are made using the scalloped 7/8" scallop circle punch and cut towards the center on each petal, then added a basic rhinestone to the center.

On the inside, I inked up the swallowtail stamp with the same three colors and stamped at an angle.
Supplies Used
Cardstock ~ whisper white, Bermuda bay, night of navy, pear pizzazz
Stamp set ~ Swallowtail, Lots of Thanks
Misc. ~ mosaic folder, basic rhinestones, 7/8" scallop circle punch, regal candy dots, silver 1/8"ribbon, night of navy 1/4" stitched grosgrain ribbon
