Telescope Card

A Yahoo group I belong to has a monthly card swap and this month's challenge is to make a card that is different from your normal  card style.  I chose to make a telescope card for this swap.   I also decided to use my newly purchased Brusho coloured crystals to colour my flowers, butterfly and background. 

Here is my telescope card folded up.

Some of the products I used to make my card are:

Brusho crystals
Sentiment stamp by Hero Arts

It has been a long time since I made and telescope card.  It was fun to make.  Thank you for stopping to take a look.
