Is it a Butterfly or Moth?

Hi All
Well it was a matter of much debate when we played with this fabulous Magnolia stamp at SirStampalot at the end of last year.
Several people were insistent that it was a butterfly, but I have it on the authority of one lovely lady who had one as a pet when she lived abroad (there's no accounting for taste Anne) and Google, that it is indeed a very HUGE moth, namely the Atlas Moth. (Look HERE for pictures)
I have used a Kaleidacolour inkpad to stamp and emboss the main image,
and also to colour wash and stamp over the white embossed images in the background.
I also added some chunky white Frantage powder around the edges of both panels.
The main panel on this card has been created in a similar manner to the first card, but with a bit of extra stamping and sponging.
I love the die that I have used to create the dotty panel on the right hand side of the card. It makes fabulous homemade tiny Card Candi.
This card was made using a bit of the left over white embossed background card. 
The background to the card was created using a homemade embossing folder and plenty of sponged ink.
Today has been beautiful here, a sunny if chilly day after some initial rain. A little too cold for butterflies or even moths, but wonderfully springlike nonetheless.
Let's hope that it continues into tomorrow. Not that I will get to see any of it as I have to work until 7pm, so all I will want to see is dinner and a sit down.
Oh well never mind, I don't really do sunshine anyway lol.
Have a great evening.
