Crafty Creations Challenge 81 - Butterfly DT card

The challenge this week over at Crafty Creations is to use a buterfly on your card. I had intended making a butterfly with my Quickutz die (which I've only used recently) but could I find it???? no!!! so panic!! I also knew I had these lovely Papermania butterflys - somewhere- & after rooting through my stash managed to find the last one - phew!! I must find my die though because it's such a sweet little butterfly & I use it quite alot.
Note to self - Tidy your craft room!!!!!

The image is a sweet Whiff of Joy I've had coloured for a while. I've decided I must start using some of the stack of already coloured images before the colours start to fade (can that happen with Copics?) so have used this sweet Melinda Hugging Heart. It's been cut using the Labels Four Nestability & the edges embossed using a tan mat.

The cardstock is Stampin Up as is the DP. I've layered lace & two different ribbons across the card, I especially love the strip on velvet ribbon which was sent to me by a very good friend ;-).

I've made the flowers using the Stampin Up Boho Blossoms punch & added a bit of bling with some tiny pearl beads & stickles, I've also added a bit of tulle behind them but this hasn't shown up too well in the picture.
Once I had the stickles in my hand I went a bit mad & started hightlinting areas of the card . . . .Melinda's wings & the flower on the DP,  I was about to start on the bird when I came out of my stickles trance lol!!!

Pop across to the Crafty Creations Challenge blog & see the beautiful creations from the rest of the DT. It would be lovely if you could join in with the challenge.
