sending sweet wishes

It has been a very productive cardmaking day today.  The first follows the challenges from CAS-ual Fridays - use chipboard  - I used  Words or Whatever butterflies and I loosely followed the sketch from Card Patterns - I flipped the sketch on its' side so the row of buttons (I used butterflies) is along the bottom of the card.

I loved working with chipboard and for this card I painted the butterflies and fussy cut patterned paper for the wings, applied rhinestones for the body and then covered the patterned paper with glossy accents.

here is a close up
materials - AC white, Core 'dinations montego bay cardstock; Lilly Bee 'this & that' papers; AnnaBelle Stamps 'party animals 1' stamps, Stampendous 'stitched borders' stamps; Versa Color turquoise ink; Words or Whatever butterfly lasercut chipboard; Provocraft circle dies; Kaisercraft rhinestones; Ranger Inkssentials glossy accents, Ranger white opal liquid pearls.
Thanks for looking.
