Butterflies Thinking of You

Hello all I finally got a day off and decided to play along with The Play Date Cafe. The colors this week were picked by Ruby 2 Shoes and they are gorgeous!
I had all the colors in my stash but none of them were together  . . . hmmm. . . what to do  . . what to do . . .punches!!

I used three different butterfly punches. I punched several out of each color.
To give them a little something I covered some in glossy accents, some in crackle accents, and some in stardust stickles.
Here's a close up

I adhered the large and medium sized ones only by their body, folding the wings up. For the small ones I used foam.

I wanted to keep the rest of the card pretty simple with all those butterflies. The card base is just plain white cardstock with two rounded edges.

The sentiment is from Hero Arts (Essential messages) stamped in black ink. To fit the sentiment over the butterflies I scored it twice and then folded so it would be a "pop up" banner.

Thanks for looking :)
