Butterflies Galore!

Today I have a card that was inspired by a sketch over at Inkspirational Challenges, along with a colour challenge over at Party Time Tuesdays.  I have never taken part in the Party Time Tuesday challenges but loved the colour combination that they had going for this week.


I wanted to make a card with Butterflies on it and make that my focal point.  Then I found another challenge over at FlourishesTimeless Tuesday that had the subject for the week being Butterflies.  This is another new Challenge site for me.
I had originally thought of doing a white on white card, but once I had the butterflies stamped I knew I needed to take it up a notch so I went with the orange cardstock for my base.  
Starting with the butterfly in the centre I worked my way around the card using the four different colours and a rock-n-roll technique for the stamping.  
For the bling portion I didn't want to be too flashy so I went with four small deep red pearls.
The inside of the card uses the "Celebrate" stamp from Outlined Occasions and once again I added the little butterflies to accent it.  

Hope you like what I have come up with.  I know it's just a matter of time before I see the real thing in my backyard and can't wait.

Thanks for stopping by.
