Butterfly Card for SoSS Challenge #13-L is for Layer : One Layer

Hi All! 
Well, I'm a week late, drat!  I do procrastinate, but this is really bad!  I had no card making mojo going, especially for a one layer card.  I decided to post this card late since I wanted to share my photos of Flat Edna!

I'll tell you about the card after you check out Flat Edna!

Flat Edna visited our local grocery stores-Woodman's.  Their headquarters in in Janesville.  Edna and I did not do grocery shopping, get gas, or go through their car wash, but we perused the selections of another area of the store!  Let's just say, before we became the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers we were part of the design team of Drunken Stampers!  Does that give you a little clue?

Flat Edna & I had a blast checking out two Wisconsin wines along with other uniquely named ones.  Like the SoSS, Edna enjoys her libations!  It took quite awhile to make it through all the wines...their selection is huge!!!  My favorite is Prairie Fume' from Wollersheim Winery. 
The manager recommended 19 Crimes; I haven't opened it yet...I'm not sure I want to "Uncork a Criminal".  But, what the heck, I'll try it tonight!  :-)  It's named for the 19 Crimes that could get you sent to Australia.
One more wine and after that a few of the many Wisconsin Craft beers!  Spotted Cow from the New Glarus Brewing Co. is one of my favorites!  Another beer is made where Snarky Sister, Lee, used to live. 

Back to the card:

I spritzed the card base using the Distress Marker Spritzer.  Then I stamped the sentiment and Swallowtail Butterfly from Stampin' Up with Versamark.  The Aqua Opaque embossing powder I used was Zing!'s.  After I poured the EP off I noticed that the spritzes were still wet enough for the EP to adhere.  I edged the card with VersaMagic in Turquoise Gem.
