Birthday Butterfly

Just a quick post so I can squeak into a couple of challenges before they end.  I made this card for my friends birthday.  I love how it turned out! Take a look...

I embossed a small piece of white card stock with my Chevron embossing folder (Darice) and mounted it to my white card base with foam dots.  I stamped my butterfly (Stampendous) in black then coloured it randomly with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I added some fine brass wire antennae and used glossy accents to attach them.  I applied a thin layer of diamond ice stickles to the butterfly. I stamped my sentiment (Stampabilities) in black and then glued my butterfly down using glossy accents again.  I added some sequins (Neat and Tangled) randomly around.

I'm linking up to the following challenges :

CAS-ual Fridays - it's a tic-tac-toe this month.

I went with chevron, black, and sequins.

Addicted to Stamps and More - make a CAS card.

Thanks for visiting and have a lovely day!
