CAS Mix Up - October 2019 - Foiling - Butterflies

Good day to You,
It's the 1st of October and time for a new challenge at CAS Mix Up.  This month Bonnie is Hostess and wanting us to Use Foiling on our cards. We Welcome Michele (I Card Everyone) as our Guest Designer for October.
I used a Butterfly Stencil for the background and Deco Foil Transfer Gel with a Laminator.  The Butterflies from Stampin' Up were die cut from Twin  Stick Foam and the foil added by hand.  I embossed the sentiment and stamped the inside colouring those Butterflies with my Wink of Stella Brush and a Marker.
