Butterfly Card

I have been sick in bed all week, and I pulled myself up today to make a card. I just couldn't stand sitting still any longer!! I am feeling a little better today, and my energy level is returning somewhat.

I wanted to make a card for three reasons; 1) I am going to go stir crazy if I don't get up and do something, lol! 2) For Sweet Magnolia's Card Challenge (which ends tomorrow), and for Enfy's Party Challenge.

Here is my card:


 I took pics from several angles so you can see the 3D value to it.
 Here's a closeup to show the glimmer mist a little better:


 The cardstock is Rose Red (SU!), the dp is from DCWV Glitter Sweet stack, and the Stickles are Fruit Punch. I also sprayed it with SU! Champagne Shimmer Mist that has been mixed with alcohol to make it sprayable.

I cute out both shapes on my Silhouette SD. The butterfly pattern is a free download I found here. I mirrored the largest butterfly and welded the two shapes together to make it a card.

I am entering this in these challenges:

Sweet Magnolia Rose (Up and Away and Represent a Dream of mine--Butterflies are free to go Up and Away whenever and wherever, plus they remind me of Summer and right now I'm dreaming of warmer weather, lol!)

Going Buggy -- (What else? Something with a bug, hee hee)

Okay, I'm off to bed now. I need a nap...zzzzzz
