Flutterby Wednesday Challenge for April 24, 2013

We had a fun challenge this week from Flutterby Wednesday; this week we have a layout to follow, and I must say, I had to think a lot about what papers to use for each part of the design.  Of course, we must include the flutterby element, and I chose to use three butterflies on the upper right side of the card.  I used no dies on this card, which is a bit unusual. Rather, cut-outs were used and assembled.  The flower is  multi-layered with graduated sizes of yellow and pink petals, then after they were assembled, I fluffed them out a bit to add dimension.  A yellow rhinestone is in the middle of the flower. It is hard to tell, but I used a very light coat of gold spray paint all over the card.  It is so subtle that if a person did not know it was there, they probably wouldn't notice, but upon close examination, there is a slight matte gold glimmer on the card.

Here it is:

Thank you, Flutterby Wednesday, for challenging us each week to present our work to you!
